How You Can Help

  • Yard waste is bagged leaves, grass clippings, weeds, bulbs, twigs, pine cones and uprooted plants. Bundles of branches and limbs should be tied into four-foot lengths.
  • Once-a-week trash/recycling customers should put bagged and bundled yard waste where your trash is collected at the same time the trash container is placed.
  • Twice-a-week trash/recycling customers should put their yard waste out with the trash on their second collection day.
