Yard Waste / Chipper Programs begins March 31, 2014

Begins March 31, 2014 - Ends December 12, 2014

We suggest City resident’s cut grass high and let the clippings remain on your lawn.  This acts as a free fertilizer as well as a weed inhibitor.  Toters/ stacked brush will be collected curbside the day following your regular trash collection.

All compost material MUST be placed in a “Green Toter” for collection. Toters may be purchased at Lowe’s Home Improvements (96 or 64 gallon size) & Wal-Mart (64 gallon size.)

If you chose not to participate in the compost program you may bag your compost material and bring it to the compost site located at the City Garage. You will then empty your bags into the compost row and take your bags back with you.

Grass, leaves, flowers, garden waste, weeds, pine needles/cones & green hedge trimmings placed in your toter will be collected by City crews curbside only.

Yard Waste Toters are NOT to be used for household trash or brush.

Collection will be the day following your regular trash pickup & toters must be out front by 7:00 a.m.

  • Material must be free from any other debris.

BRUSH/LIMB collection is provided for City residents on a weekly basis from April to December.  Brush/limb collection will not be provided to apartment complexes, businesses, churches, trailer parks, or on private streets. Brush/limbs will be picked up curbside the day after regular trash collection, and must be stacked.

  • Brush/limbs must not exceed 6' in length and stacked at curb (no bags please)
  • One armful of limbs can go in your brown trash toter with your regular trash
  • Brush/limbs must be free of all other debris and trash
  • Shrubs with roots must be dirt free
