Yard Waste Disposal Options

Arrange with Hauler to Collect Yard Waste

For an additional fee, residents may arrange for yard waste collection through their hauler. The yard waste will be picked up on the same day as your trash from April 15 - November 30th. Residential dwelling units shall have their yard waste segregated from other refuse in compostable kraft paper bags designed for the collection and disposal of yard waste or a permanent can clearly identified as "Yard Waste" located at the boulevard adjoining the curb on or before 7:00 a.m. on the designated day of collection. Contact your hauler directly to arrange for this service.

Did You Know...?

  • That depositing any yard waste such as leaves, trash, dirt, and grass clippings, from the boulevard or private property into the street is prohibited.
  • If your yard waste is picked up by a hauler or recycler, state law now says you must use a reusable container or special bag that can be composted. Plastic bags are not considered reusable containers and are banned.
