Yard Waste Collection

The Yard Waste Collection Program provides residential curbside collection once a week.

Organic wastes collected at the curb are taken to a private facility where they are processed into mulch and sold for commercial use.

  • Grass clippings, leaves and branches must be bagged, or bundled and tied in 4-feet lengths and placed at curbside for pickup. 

  • Yard waste cannot exceed a combined weight of 50 lbs per bag, bundle, or container. In the interest of safety, containerized and bundled yard waste may not protrude from the top of the container.

  • Bags/bundles must be positioned curbside at a distance of 3 feet from blue trash carts.
