Yard waste will also be collected in a separate truck starting April 1 of each year and ending on Friday of the second full week in December. Please have your yard waste set out for collection by 7 a.m.

Yard waste includes: Garden waste, leaves, lawn cuttings, shrubs & tree trimmings/pruning waste. Yard waste will be collected in 95 gallon carts and up to 32 gallon plastics or metal containers marked yard waste.
