No. Staff will only collect yard waste that is loose and has been put in an approved yard waste cart.
Residents who produce a small amount of yard waste and clippings are encouraged to compost those clippings or find another way to dispose of the waste.
Customers who have an old, green cart from the City, can use that cart for loose yard waste.
If residents produce enough yard waste on a regular basis as to merit the use of a yard waste cart, we encourage them to buy a green, yard waste cart from the City. Residents who want to purchase a different cart for yard waste must call Public Works to confirm that their cart will work with the City’s yard waste collection truck. If a cart is not compatible with the City truck, staff will not collect the yard waste.
Of course, you don’t have to use a yard waste cart for tree limbs. The City will collect brush/limb piles that do not exceed six feet in length or five feet in height. Tree limbs must not exceed four inches in diameter.
