Solid Waste Department crews are collecting yard debris during a special free residential collection underway this week, May 3-7.
During this special collection week only, residents may place their leaves, grass, lawn clippings and other yard debris at the curb in bags on their normal trash collection day for collection by Solid Waste Department crews.
Keep in mind the collection is for:
- Lawn clippings
- Limbs and branches, if cut in lengths no longer than four feet and bundled (may not exceed 50 pounds)
During the week of May 3-7, yard debris bags will not require yard waste stickers and clear or colored bags are allowed. The collection is for private residences only; no commercial collections will be made.
There is no limit on the number of bags a resident can put out for the collection. Yard debris will only be collected once, on your normal collection day of the week. Extra bags or items of household refuse outside the cart must have the red refuse sticker attached. Residents should comply with all other standard refuse regulations.
Yard refuse will be collected separately from trash but will be collected on the customer’s normal trash collection day. For more information, contact the Solid Waste Department at 918.338.4130.
