Yard Waste Collection
All City residents may dispose of yard waste at the Refuse and Yard Waste Drop Off Center. However, residents may also choose to subscribe to the Yard Waste Collection Program, which provides yard waste pickup by the City for $100 per season. This charge will be applied to the property owner’s City utility bill. Multiple neighbors may share a single subscription as long as the yard waste is placed in one location.

Collection Schedule
Yard waste and brush will be collected one day per week through the season, which runs from the first week in April through the first week in December.

Signing Up for the Program
Residents may subscribe to or cancel the Yard Waste Collection Program at anytime. Subscription fees and/or cart fees will not be prorated. Once your application is processed you will receive a letter with the dates of the program, your pickup day, and 10 yard waste stickers.

To cancel the Yard Waste Collection Program, please fill out a Voluntary Service Cancellation and return it to the Finance Department at 1528 3rd Avenue.

Collection Requirements
Residents who subscribe to the Yard Waste Collection Program must place yard waste in either yard waste bags or a yard waste cart that customers may rent from the City at an additional cost of $50 per season.
