Yard waste is picked up on the same day as your household garbage. Please make sure your yard waste container is at least five (5) feet from your household garbage container. The City will only collect grass, small shrubbery, weeds, and plants clippings that has been placed in one of the City’s green yard waste containers or a comparable container. Do not bag yard waste. Do not put sticks, rocks, bricks, or glass in the yard waste containers. Green, roll-out yard waste containers are available for purchase through City Hall.
