Gardener planting flowers

The Sanitation Department will begin running weekly brush and yard waste toter collection routes starting March 18th through December 13th 2024. Brush and yard waste toters are collected on the same day as trash collection.

The City yard waste program is intended for the disposal of common green yard wastes such as grass clippings, weeds, leaves, and flowers.

We would like to remind residents that yard waste toters must be free of:

  • Trash or recycling of any kind, such as garden pots and soil bags
  • Weed barrier fabric
  • Sticks, branches, wood, or tree trimmings
  • Rocks and mulch
  • Household food
  • Pet waste

To participate in our brush collection program, please have your brush stacked neatly at the curb away from obstructions on your trash day by 7 a.m. for chipper truck collection. Large piles of brush exceeding 6’ in length, or are larger than a pick-up truck load, must be submitted for collection through our CurbCycle App, or called in to the Department of Public Works Office at 812-376-2509 for collection.
