Yard waste (year-round collection) is considered grass and leaves, which must be in brown, biodegradable paper lawn bags, or in lidless, bushel-sized containers, weighing no more than 50 pounds.
Bags and containers must be placed curbside no sooner than 7am on Tuesday and no later than 7am on Wednesday to ensure collection.
Please be aware of inclement weather conditions, as wet bags will not be collected in order to avoid debris from rips. The brown paper bags can be purchased at places like Lowes, Wal-Mart, and Home Depot.
If packaged any other way, such as plastic bags or containers over 50 pounds, it will not be taken. Yard waste cannot be mixed with nor placed with normal household trash.
Wheelbarrows and large trash cans are not acceptable containers.
**Please note that sod, dirt, mulch, and rocks are not considered yard waste and the city cannot collect these types of items. Consider mulching your grass clippings instead.
City residents are required to call in at least 24-hours in advance and schedule any bulk trash pick up to 410-848-9077.
