Yard Waste & Leaf Pickup

CURBSIDE LEAF COLLECTION ROUTE

On Wednesday, December 5th, DPW crews made their final pass of leaf pick-up for the city.  Residents may bag any yard waste and set out on their trash day for the next two weeks. Last day for curbside bagged pick-up for Tuesday's collection is December 11th, and the last day for Friday's collection is December 14th.

YARD WASTE

Yard waste and leaf pickup guidelines change periodically throughout the year. During the yard waste pickup season, residents are encouraged to put yard waste out by 7 AM on the scheduled trash collection day using paper yard waste bags or 35-gallon cans marked "YARD WASTE."

Please click on items listed below for specific information about yard waste collection and dates or click here to see a printable version of the yard waste pickup schedule.

Please note: when using cans, please make sure the "YARD WASTE" label is facing the street and is set aside from other trash containers.  Bags/cans should not weigh more than 50 pounds.  Please note that plastic bags containing yard waste will NOT be collected.

TAGS ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED FOR YARD WASTE BAGS OR CANS.

  • Yard waste is collected on your garbage day, April 2 through Mid-December.
  • Yard waste is grass, leaves, shrubbery cuttings, vines, rose bushes, roots, stumps, and sticks.
  • Yard debris must be placed in a paper yard waste bag. Otherwise, the yard debris must be placed in a container marked "COMPOST" or "YARD WASTE" and cannot weigh more than 50 pounds.
  • Paper yard waste bags may be dropped off at SOCRRA for no charge between Mid-December and March 31.

LEAF PICK UP

Leaves may be raked to the curb in neat rows from October 1 through November 30. Do not place any other yard debris in the street. Otherwise, dispose of leaves by placing them in paper yard waste bags or marked containers for weekly disposal,  on your regular trash pick up day, from  April 2 through Mid-December.
