Yard Waste

The Public Works Department has the following helpful hints to insure better service, efficiency and safety:
  • Each bundle, bag, or container of yard waste must weigh less than 50 pounds.
  • Yard waste is limited to 10 bags or a pile that is no larger than 4 cubic yards, anything over this is subject to a charge ($20 minimum), which will be added to your utility bill.
  • If you choose to put your yard waste in a container, the container should be an approved garbage container, not to exceed 50 gallons, have handles and a tight fitting lid.
  • Clippings and tree branches are to be bundled and must be 6 feet or less in length
  • Duct tape makes a good bundler.
  • Yard waste and/or bulk items should be placed:
    • In your yard and not your neighbor's or a vacant lot
    • Within 3 feet (3') of the curb
    • No earlier than 7 p.m. the day before your collection day
    • No later than 7 a.m. the morning of collection
    • Away from power lines and poles, mailboxes, or anything that might interfere with the "claw'
  • Bulk items (furniture, appliances, toys, and carpet) are collected with your yard waste; however, there is a charge for anything over 4 cubic yards. Four cubic yards is about the size of a pick-up truck bed.
  • If there is to be a charge for the item the Sanitation Driver will take a photo of the item in question. The Operations Manager will determine the cost ($20 minimum) and will place the charge on your utility bill.
