Yard waste will be collected every Monday. Yard waste is taken to a composting contractor as part of the contract with Republic Services.
Yard waste should be placed at your curb in biodegradable brown kraft bags.
You can place up to 20 bags at the curb for pickup.
Yard waste is defined as lawn, grass, or shrubbery cuttings or clippings and dry leaf rakings, small tree branches (not to exceed 4-feet in length), bushes, shrubs, green leaf cuttings, fruits or other matter usually created by refuse in the care of lawns and yards.
Yard waste in non-biodegradable containers such as garbage bags will not be picked up as yard waste but rather left at your curb to be picked up on your regular solid waste collection day and will be considered bulk waste that will be hauled to the landfill for disposal. Yard waste placed in customer-owned cans or bins will not be serviced.
Tied & Bundled Brush
All trees, shrubs and brush trimmings not contained in kraft bags must be cut, tied with biodegradable cotton/jute rope, twine, or string, placed in bundles, and set out without obstructing the sidewalk.
Do not bundle tree and brush trimmings with nylon rope, plastic, metal, garden hoses, or other non-compostable materials.
Individual bundles should weigh no more than 50 lbs. and be no longer than 4-feet.
You can place up to 20 bundles at the curb for pickup.
