Yardwaste may be placed in the black lid waste cart at any time of the year.
Excess yardwaste that does not fit in the cart must be placed in paper yardwaste bags. With the exception of the time of Surge Yardwaste (what name is the best for this) collection described below, yardwaste bags must have a sticker applied for collection. These stickers cost $1.98 each plus tax. Stickers are available directly from FCC or from these retail locations. Bundles of brush are also acceptable. They must have a sticker also. The bundles must not be longer than 4 feet, tied with string or twine, and no more than 40 pounds.
Spring and Fall Yardwaste Collection Season
To help accommodate the large quantity of yardwaste in the spring and fall, the City is providing a collection window when unlimited yardwaste will be collected and stickers will not be required. In addition, this material will be composted to make Oma-Gro compost.
There will be a six week time in the spring and a six week time in the fall for this separate yardwaste collection. The collection time will be adjusted each year, announced by the news media, and on wasteline.org.
All yardwaste for this collection must be in paper yardwaste bags. No plastic bags, no trash cans, no bundles of brush. You may use your regular black lid waste cart for yardwaste at the same time, however material in the waste cart will not be composted.
Christmas Trees Collection Preparation
You are encouraged to utilize one of the Christmas tree collection sites where the trees will be put to a beneficial use. At these collection sites, other than removing all decorations you don’t need to do anything else.
If not using a Christmas tree collection site, the tree may be cut up and fit into your black lid waste cart. The branches of the Christmas tree may be trimmed off and tied up in a bundle, then with a sticker applied it will be collected. The trunk may go in the cart.
