Curbside Yard Waste Volume Limits

Beginning Oct. 1, 2019, a new solid waste and recycling collection contract took effect. The collection of yard waste (loose and containerized combined) is limited to a maximum of one (1) 6 cubic yard pile per week (equal to 3 standard size refrigerators) at the curb. Please make sure the amount you place curbside does not exceed one (1) pile or 6 cubic yards as the limitation is strictly enforced and the new Yard Waste Ordinance is in effect (Ordinance 2019-022 (PDF)). Bulk collection is once per week on your scheduled bulk collection service day with three items collected. We sincerely thank you for your assistance and cooperation.
