Leaves Are Falling- Don't Forget Policy Change to Yard Waste Collection

Leaf Collection Truck

Since today is the first official day of fall, we wanted to remind all residents that Public Works recently changed its yard waste collection policy/procedure. We will no longer allow yard waste to be collected in PAPER or PLASTIC BAGS. Yard waste must either be placed in 95-gallon yard waste carts (available for purchase at $48.25) or raked curbside (Collected in a pile). Yard waste piles should be long and narrow and placed as close to the curb as possible (within 10’). Do not place leaves in drainage ditch, sidewalk, bike lane, or in street. Thanks!
