Please note: 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: The first FULL WEEK of April 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 "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 late March.


CURBSIDE LEAF COLLECTION PICK-UP

Leaves ONLY may be raked to the curb in neat rows from Mid-October through the end of November. Do not place sticks, twigs, or any other yard debris in the street.

Otherwise, residents can dispose of leaves by placing them in paper yard waste bags or marked containers for weekly disposal, on their regular trash pick-up day, from early April through Mid-December.

**LEAF PICK-UP UPDATE - 11/22/2022 as of 12:00 PM**
Public Works (DPW) crews will be out and about collecting leaves around the City. 

  • Friendly Reminder - Please be sure to remove your garbage bins from the street and park your vehicles in the driveway so that our crews can get through.

Public Works Notes regarding the Collection Map

  1. This map is updated regularly to show what section crews are in.
  2. Several passes are made regularly during leaf season.
    • NOTE: Coverage is dictated by workload and leaf volumes.
  3. On-street parking can slow/deter leaf collection. Limited parking on the street is appreciated during this time.
  4. Collection on 11 Mile, Catalpa, and Greenfield may deviate from this map. 
  5. NOTE FOR KENMORE/CORNWALL RESIDENTS:
    • DPW has requested that residents impacted by the construction bag their leaves for placement on their regular trash day. To stay up to date on the latest information regarding this specific construction project, sign up for eBlasts at https://tinyurl.com/kenmorecornwallprojectupdates
