Curbside Yard Waste Collection Guidelines




  • No trash or treated wood to be mixed in with yard waste please.
  • Do not tie or bundle any branches. Simply stack them neatly in front of your house, as far away from your garbage can as possible.
  • Smaller items such as grass and shrub clippings should be put into a yard bag, or you may place smaller yard debris into a garbage can, and leave the top off so the truck driver can identify it as yard waste. Cans used cannot be any larger than 35 gallons.
  • Please place regular garbage and your yard waste as far apart as possible on the curb.
  • Limbs can be no larger than 18 inches in diameter, 50 lbs and 6 feet in length. No root balls allowed.
  • Place your yard waste on the curb the night before your regular garbage collection day.

Yard waste may also be brought to the Dean Domingues Compost Facility. Click HERE for more information.
