Unlimited Included with service
(April 1 to November 30)
Yard Waste (grass clippings, leaves, branches, etc. – no dirt or rock) should be placed in brown paper yard waste bags or trash cans (32 gallons or less, and must be marked ‘YARD WASTE’). These cannot exceed 40-pounds in weight. Branches and brush should be cut into 3-4 foot lengths and be no wider than 6 inches in diameter. Branches can be placed in the yard waste bag or put in reasonable-sized bundles tied with twine or string.
Please place your totes, yard waste bags or containers behind the curb or off the pavement to prevent conflicts with vehicular traffic or maintenance issues such as street sweeping. Another problem that arises during heavy rainfalls is the tote floating or some items stacked along the curb may be washed into catch basins which may lead to the flooding of the street.
