What is considered yard waste?

Yard waste includes grass cuttings, weeds, leaves, shrub clippings, twigs and small branches. Yard waste may be placed in reusable containers with a maximum size of 50 gallons and maximum loaded weight of 50 lbs. Containers should be marked "Yard Waste."  If yard waste does not fit in a container leaves must be placed in 30 gallon kraft paper recyclable bags available at local home improvement stores and branches must be bundled per brush guidelines noted below.

 

Collection

Yard waste is collected once a week on the same day as your scheduled refuse collection day. Yard waste and brush should not be placed at the curb for more than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled collection day, and must be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. of the scheduled collection day.

Containers

Yard waste may be placed in reusable containers not to exceed 50 gallons or 50 lbs. of loaded weight.  Containers should be marked "Yard Waste".

Bundling Brush Guidelines

Brush must be cut and tied in bundles not to exceed four (4) foot in length and weighing no more than Fifty (50) pounds. Tree trunks, tree limbs, and stumps must be no more than three (3) inches in diameter and meet the above criteria for weight and bundling. Trees and stumps cut by tree companies or contractors will not be removed by the Town.

Rake leaves as close to the curb as possible for collection. Please do not block storm sewers, driveways or sidewalks.

Please note leaf collection is based on weather conditions. Inclement weather (freezing rain & snow) will delay the collection of leaves. When snow is forecast, do not rake leaves into the curb or street - snow removal operations will take precedence over leaf collection operations! Leaf collection will resume once the weather allows for pickup.

Determine if you are located north or south of the bike trail
