Table of Contents | Click to navigate sections on this page
These services do not require an appointment or additional fees. Residents who choose to participate should have their yard waste prepared as instructed and curbside by 7:00 a.m. the day of collection. If a collection day falls on a holiday, crews will operate the following day.
If weather is uncooperative or time does not permit route completion, crews will resume the next available day. Likewise, when snow is in the forecast, use your best judgement when placing items out for collection. Crews will not remove covered or buried waste. opens in a new window2022 Maileropens PDF file

Crews will collect branches from one (1) to three (3) inches in diameter, of any length, as well as small shrubs. As long as the thickest part of a branch falls within diameter limitations, there is no need to trim further. Do not commingle branches with any other yard waste or debris, and remove any root balls. Items will be tagged and left behind if they are not within the realms of the opens in a new windowpolicyopens PDF file . See the Compost Facility for alternate disposal of other yard waste.
This program was established to provide chipping for residents who perform routine trimming and maintenance. Therefore, if you have a tree removed, the waste must be disposed of elsewhere.
Do not put branches in the street! Place them along the front curb line with the cut ends angled in the direction of traffic. Do not tie or contain these items in any way. Please keep piles far enough from parked cars, intersections, and other roadway obstructions for crews to access the trimmings with ease.
Place Christmas trees curbside for any one of these collection days. Trees must be free of any wires, ornaments and other attachments to be collected.
Residents should place leaves in the street, along the curb-line in long narrow piles between three (3) to four (4) feet wide. Residents that do not have a curb should keep them on the property but as close to the roadway as possible without interfering with traffic. Please leave space for any rainwater to flow to catch basins and remove any leaves that have migrated to prevent clogging or reduce the potential for localized flooding. Piles should be at least 15 feet from parked cars, intersections, and basketball nets to allow equipment space to operate.
Remove all sticks, pine cones, nuts, etc. from your leaves as these items can damage the equipment. Tarps should be removed by 7:00 a.m. on the morning of your collection day.
