A snow emergency is NOT currently in effect.

Yard waste collection season ended Nov. 30.

During residential yard waste season, yard waste is collected every week on the same day as your garbage. Yard waste must be set out by 7 a.m. to ensure collection. There is no additional cost for yard waste collection during residential yard waste season; it is included in your standard solid waste collection rate.

Yard waste includes** all garden waste, grass clippings, leaves, weeds, wood chips, twigs and branches. Set yard waste out for collection in one of these ways: 

  1. Use your own reusable container. The container should be 32 gallons or smaller, sturdy and have handles so it can be lifted by a single person. Containers do not need to be lined with a compostable bag.
  2. Use certified compostable bags, brown paper Kraft lawn bags or brown paper grocery bags. Regular plastic bags are not accepted.
  3. Branches must be less than four inches in diameter and less than four feet long. Tie branches into bundles or put in one of the container options listed above.

Note: Each container, bag or bundle should weigh no more than 40 pounds.
