  • April 5 – April 9, 2021

Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, and yard and garden debris. Yard waste must be bagged in 30 gallon or smaller biodegradable, clear or transparent bags only. Yard waste will not be collected if not property bagged or placed in non-transparent or black bags. The City offers Bio-Bags in the fall only at the Finance Department.

Please place your bagged yard waste on the curb no earlier than Saturday, April 3rd (for collection beginning on April 5th) and April 10th (for collection beginning on April 12th). All bags must be brought to the curb for final collection on April 16th, by 6:00 a.m.  After April 16th, bags will not be collected by City staff.
