Rules and Guidelines
Please have your paper bags or 18” x 36” bundles out by 7:00 am. Pickup limits are shown in parenthesis next to each pickup date above.
All items must be packaged in paper lawn waste bags or tied into 18’ x 36” bundles. Route Service begins at 7:00 a.m. Please make sure all items are easily accessible from the street and not blocked by cars, garbage cans, etc.
We only pickup natural yard waste including grass, leaves, tree limbs (up to 6” diameter), flower or garden plants (without their pots), walnuts, apples, Christmas trees (6’ or less), etc. All materials collected are taken to a licensed compost facility. This recycling facility does not allow for ANY trash, landscape, or construction materials. If bags contain trash or foreign material they will have to be left at the curb. Any plastic inside your bag will be considered trash and not picked up. We do NOT collect animal waste. Please tie brush securely with rope or twine – not wire. Mark bundles of thorns for the driver’s safety. Christmas Trees are the only items that do not require bagging or bundling. We will accept Christmas trees up to 6’ in length, if larger please cut in half.
Maximum item weight is 50 pounds. Do not use plastic tape on paper bags since it is not biodegradable. Small cardboard boxes may be used provided they are no larger than the size and weight limits. We suggest boxes for fruits, small brush, wood or items that would easily break a bag during removal. We ask you to not use cans for your waste. Watch placement of your paper bags to avoid sitting in water at the curb.
