Regular Yard Waste/Compost & Brush routes will operate March 21-December 16, 2022
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. Yard waste toters and stacked brush will be collected curbside the day of your regular trash collection.
YARD WASTE TOTERS (DARK GREEN TOTER) – THIS IS AN SEASONAL/OPTIONAL PROGRAM. IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE:
All compost material MUST be placed in a dark green Yard Waste Toter for collection, a ” Toter brand” toter purchased from Lowes Home Improvement or at the Department of Public Works. (BROWN WITH AN ORANGE LID)
BROWN/BLACK LID trash toters CANNOT be used for yard waste or recyclables. BROWN/GREEN LID recycling toters CANNOT be used for yard waste or trash
YARD WASTE toters must be out by 7:00am on collection day, & not prior to 24 hours before pick-up or 24 hours after collection.
Grass, leaves, flowers, garden waste, weeds, pine needles/cones & green hedge trimmings placed in your toter will be collected by City crews curbside only. NO HOUSEHOLD TRASH OR ANYTHING WOODY!
If you chose NOT to participate in the yard waste program you may bag your yard waste material and bring it to the compost site located at the Department of Public Works. You will then empty your bags into the compost row and take your bags back with you.
