Weekly collection of yard waste is included in the standard service rate of $21.55 per month and will be collected on the same day as trash.
Unlimited amounts of yard waste will be collected year round. Yard waste includes grass clippings, leaves, vines, hedges, shrub and tree trimmings, smaller tree branches, household and yard plants, and holiday trees.
Tree limbs and branches less than six inches in diameter must be tied in bundles no larger than four foot long and 24 inches in diameter, and weigh no more than 60 pounds. Yard waste does not include dirt or rocks.
Yard waste may be disposed of in paper bags or plastic trash cans. Cans used for yard waste must be clearly marked with the words “Yard Waste Only.” Residents may also request an additional 96-gallon cart at an additional cost of $1.50 per month for yard waste.
Yard waste will not be accepted in plastic bags. Free “Yard Waste Only” stickers may be obtained from City Hall or by calling Waste Management.
