Yard Waste

Yard Waste Removal

  • Grass clippings, leaves, limbs, and brush are picked up from your home once a week on your regular collection day.
  • Put leaves and clippings in paper bags, clear plastic bags, strong cardboard boxes, or an approved black yard waste cart.
  • Limbs and brush must be bundled (tied) in lengths of 4 feet or less, weighing not more than 50 pounds.
  • Tree service contractors are responsible for removal and proper disposal of all material generated by their work.
  • Yard waste collection begins at 6 a.m. Roll-out containers which are not out when the truck passes, will not be collected until the next regularly scheduled pickup day.
