Leaf & Yard Waste Collection

Collection Guidelines

Leaf and yard waste collection is scheduled for November 4-8 and November 11-15, 2019. Yard waste must be bagged in biodegradable, clear or transparent bags only. The City offers Bio-Bags in the fall at the Finance Department free of charge while supplies last. Yard waste will not be collected if not properly bagged or placed in non-transparent or black bags.

Please place your bagged yard waste on the curb no earlier than Saturday, November 2, 2019. We ask residents to use the compost site to dispose of leaf and yard waste prior to November 2, 2019. The compost site is open Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. and Wednesdays from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. The compost site will close for the season at 6 p.m. Wednesday, November 20, 2019. Please do not place biodegradable or clear bags at the curb until the November collection dates.  

Residents requesting brush collection should call 473-0560 to make an appointment for pick up on Tuesdays.
