Yard Waste Debris from residents is collected on Thursday and Friday of every week weather permitting.

Guidelines are as follows:

The Department of Public Works has been using the leaf collection truck which has improved the efficiency and changed some processes of yard debris collection.

  • Please do not place leaves or grass clippings on a tarp or in a container.

  • Keep all leaves and grass separate from limbs.

  • Do not discharge or blow grass or leaves into the street.

  • Do not place ANY yard waste in the street.  When it rains, the yard waste clogs storm drains which causes flooding. All yard waste should be placed adjacent to the street.

  • All limbs should be less than 60” in length.

  • Yard waste should be out by 7AM on Thursday mornings. Pickup will be on Thursdays and Fridays. Leaves will be picked up daily in the fall.
