Yard Waste

Yard waste consists of excess leaves, grass, tree and shrubbery trimmings, and other organic material removed in general maintenance of the property by the homeowner. Yard waste does not consist of construction debris, demolition debris, dirt, brick, block, sod, mud, pavement, or any other material that could be defined as household waste or non-compost material.

Yard waste is collected every week on the same day as garbage. Yard waste bins are not provided and material must be prepared according to the guidelines below:

  • Clear plastic bags can be tied and any other style of bag that is not clear must be left open. Bags over 50 pounds will be left on the curbside.
  • Loose piles of grass (of any kind) or organic matter will not be serviced.
  • Waste Pro will collect up to 20 bags of leaves per week.
  • Manageable piles of limbs or brush will be collected. This doesn't include Pampas Grass-type material as this material must be bagged for retrieval. Tree limbs will be collected only if they meet the following specifications:
    • No larger than five inches in diameter.
    • No longer than five feet in length.
    • Stacked in piles that do not exceed four feet high x five feet long x four feet wide. 
    • Two feet between each pile.
  • Do not place yard debris on the sidewalk.
  • Yard waste should only be placed on the curb of the house that generated the yard waste.


Yard waste that does not meet the above criteria will be tagged as non-compliant and will not be picked up. If the resident makes the pile conform, it will be collected on the next scheduled pickup day. You may not leave your yard waste at the curb until the next pickup date if it is non-compliant.
