[ARCHIVED] Yard waste collection ending for year

fall leaves

December is your last chance of 2020 to get rid of all those leaves and branches in your yard for free. 

Waste Management conducts weekly yard waste pickups, included free in your regular trash service, March through mid-December. Friday, Dec. 11 will be the last yard waste collection of the year. 

To ensure you receive the best possible service, Waste Management offers these guidelines: 

— Only natural waste is picked up — This includes grass, trees, limbs, flowers, garden plants, walnuts, apples, etc. Trash or construction materials will not be picked up with your compost service. If bags contain trash or foreign material, they will be left at the curb.

— Packaging and item preparation —The maximum weight of any single bag must not exceed 50 pounds. All bags must be compostable and be closed by rolling down the top of the bag. Make sure you do not use staples or tape to secure the bag. Trash bags will not be taken and compost material in cans is unacceptable and will be left behind.

— Brush and branches — Brush must be tied into bundles 18” x 48” long. Tie securely with rope or twine, not wire. Plastic rope is unacceptable. Please mark all items with thorns. Plastic bags of any kind are not accepted. 

— Weekly Limits — Eight compostable bags or bundles will be accepted each week of scheduled collection. 10 compostable bags or bundles will be accepted each week of scheduled collection October through Dec. 11. Bags or bundles above these limits will need to be scheduled with our office in advance of your scheduled pick-up or have a pre-paid sticker attached.
