Yard Waste Information


  • Yard waste is categorized as leafy vegetation that composts in a short period of time.
  • Leaves, grass, garden waste, shrub trimmings, and twigs (thinner than a pencil) are yard waste.
  • Collections are scheduled in advance to attempt to meet the needs of residents.
  • Yard waste is collected curbside twice in the spring and twice in the fall (see schedule below).
  • Materials placed at the curb for collection on the scheduled weeks must be placed into open trash bags, garbage cans (no lids) or storage containers (no lids).
  • If you would like your bags back after collection-leave an empty container out for crews to put the bags back in.
  • Please do not mix brush or garbage with the materials.
  • Materials must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on Monday of the designated collection week and they will be picked up sometime during that week.
  • Yard waste can also be disposed of at the Recycle Center.
Materials are not all collected in 1 day. Collections span the entire week, but we ask all residents to place yard waste out by Monday at 7 a.m. This blanket time allows for fluctuating crew size and equipment availability, which may affect the collection route differently each date.
