Yard waste, food scraps and organic materials are collected at the curb from the first full week of April through the second full week of December.
You can use containers no larger than 35 gallons in size or biodegradable paper bags. Each container or biodegradable bag must weigh no more than 50 pounds and must have one yard waste/organics/garbage sticker attached in order to be collected. All of the types of items below use the same type of sticker.
If containers are not feasible for yard waste, place brush and tree trimmings in stacks no longer than 4 feet in length and 18 inches in diameter. Stacks do not need to be bundled with twine, but each stack must have 1 garbage/yard waste sticker attached.
Reminder: It is illegal to pile, blow or rake leaves onto the streets. Doing so can clog storm sewers, preventing them from working properly during a storm and possibly leading to flooding.
