Yard Waste

Yard waste consists of grass clippings, leaves, garden material, and bundled or contained branches that are two to three inches or smaller in diameter and cut in four-foot lengths or smaller.

Yard waste will be picked up on trash day. Curbside services typically begin the early April and continue through late November. In 2023, the first week of yard waste pickup will be the week of April 10th.

Please place at curb no later than 6 a.m. on trash day or the evening before.

How do I prepare yard waste for pick-up?

  • Place in brown paper compost bags or in a trash can (32 gallons or smaller) with handles. Cans larger 32 gallons can not be accepted, regardless of overall weight.
  • Bags or cans must weigh less than 50 pounds. 
    • Note: grass clippings can be very heavy, especially when wet! We encourage mulching grass clippings wherever feasible. 
  • Place bags or can approximately six feet from trash.
  • Stickers for reusable containers may be obtained at the Department of Public Services or City Hall at no charge.
  • Must not contain rubbish, dirt, sod, stones,  planters, plastic bags, or recyclables.
