RESIDENTIAL YARD WASTE

YARD WASTE COLLECTIONS occur on your normal scheduled collection day (except where noted one day delay for holiday) and are scheduled: one week in January, one week in March, four weeks in April, every other week from May through October, three weeks in November and one week in December. Waste Management will collect leaves, grass clippings and branches less than four inches in diameter (and no more than three feet in length) placed either in paper bags, tied in bundles or in 32-gallon garbage cans (no Yard Waste Only sticker required). Any yard waste material left in plastic bags will be left behind on the curbside. Please see link for the 2022 Holiday and Yard Waste Calendar.
 
For disposal of larger tree branches, brush or stumps that do not qualify for the Yard Waste Collection program, residential property owners may bring excess yard waste and brush to the Waste Management Transfer Station. Disposal of excess and oversized yard waste at the transfer station is not counted as one of the two free dumps offered to residential property owners and may be done without fees. Property owners must be with the load and provide government issued photo ID and proof of residency (tax bill or water bill). NO EXCEPTIONS.

If you are unable to transport the materials yourself, you may contract with a private contractor. However, to avoid the disposal fees, the property owner must be present with the load and present government issued photo id and proof of residency (copy of tax bill or water bill).
