·        Yard waste includes grass clippings, leaves, weeds, shrub trimmings and brush or limbs under 3” in diameter

·        Yard waste may be placed in a 30 gallon 2-ply kraft paper bag

·        Yard Waste may be placed in trash containers, no larger than 32 gallons, with handles.  Containers must be labeled as yard Waste to be collected – stickers are available at the DPW

·        Bags and barrels may not exceed 40lbs in weight for collection.   Bags or barrels in excess of 40lbs or too heavy to be lifted by one person will be left behind

·        Biodegradable plastic bags are NOT acceptable

Please do not rake or blow leaves (or other yard materials) into the public street or into storm drains.  In the fall, dead leaves typically collect in roads, and in moderate rainfall events can be washed into/on top of storm drains.  These leaves then block or reduce the conveyance of water into the drains and increase local flood risk.  Please be a good neighbor and help us keep catch basins clear of leaves to prevent street flooding.
