Yard Waste Cart Rules
Yard Waste Collection Program subscribers who rent a 96-gallon yard waste cart from the City should abide by the following rules and regulations:
  • Customers do not need to use yard waste stickers for yard waste placed in yard waste carts.
  • Brush and limbs may be bundled outside of yard waste carts and will be collected as long as the bundles weigh less than 50 pounds and are less than 42 inches long and 24 inches in diameter. Bundles may only be tied with twine or string.
  • Limbs and branches three inches in diameter or less are considered as yard waste and must be placed in yard waste carts without being bundled.
  • Yard waste mixed with regular household refuse will not be taken.
  • Yard waste must be set out at the normal pick up point by 7:00 am on your designated yard waste collection day in order to guarantee pick-up.
