PLEASE DO NOT CONFUSE THIS WITH LARGE TRASH PICKUP, AS LARGE TRASH/LARGE TREE WASTE PICKUP HAS NOT YET RESUMED.  THE YARD WASTE THAT IS RESUMING  IS THE WEEKLY SMALLER YARD WASTE IN APPROVED BAGS AND/OR SMALL TIED BUNDLES PLACED CURBSIDE ALONGSIDE THE WEEKLY REGULAR TRASH.

Yard/Tree Waste will be collected on residents’ normal garbage collection day. Customers are reminded that yard waste should be properly placed at the curb in city approved recycling bags, or if tree/branch trimmings, they should be bundled and/or tied in lengths not greater than 36 inches. Material not properly prepared for ease of collection will be tagged and left at the curb for the customer’s proper preparation.
