Yardwaste Collection Season
Yardwaste is now collected year-round when properly prepared. Seasonally, yardwaste will be collected in conjunction with garbage. Properly prepared containers of yardwaste do not count against the 5 containers of garbage limit. Yardwaste that is not properly prepared, and containers of yardwaste mixed with garbage will not be collected.
Christmas Trees Collection Prep
Christmas trees must be prepared as yardwaste, being cut down to 4 foot lengths, branches 2 inches in diameter maximum, and bundled with string or twine. The City plans to continue operating its Christmas tree collection sites where trees may be dropped off without any special preparation.
