Curbside brush pickup will be conducted from May 6 to May 10. The brush volume from each property is limited to one pickup load, a pile approximately 12 feet long, 6 feet wide and 5 feet high.
Crews will collect loose or brown bagged leaves from May 13 to May 24. Street sweeping and sand pickup will be conducted during leaf collection dates for all residential routes.
If you choose to bag your yard debris, it must be bagged in brown landscaping bags. These bags are made for bagging grass clippings, leaves, and general yard waste. They are also durable while still being fully recyclable and compostable. These brown yard waste bags can be found at many home improvement and garden centers. Do not use City green bags or garbage carts for yard waste. Plastic bags or bags containing garbage or other rubbish mixed with the yard waste will not be collected.
The City will not collect material after the last date listed for each route. Residents are asked to deliver it to the composting drop-off site located at 1415 Pioneer Rd. This site is opening for the season on May 4. It is open Tuesdays from 3 to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Any yard waste will be accepted but brush will be limited to one pickup load per day. “Solid Waste” fee payment on a City water bill and ID is required for admittance.
