Call for Collection

  • Residents must call 311 to schedule a collection once yard waste is placed on the curbside in one pile directly in front of their address.

Guidelines

  • Wood waste may not be larger than 8-feet in length and 24-inches in diameter.
  • Brush piles must not have garbage or other refuse stacked on top or intermixed.
  • Brush collection crews will not collect items other than yard waste.
  • Small amounts of brush, bagged leaves, and bagged grass clippings may be placed inside your garbage container for weekly collection.

Placement

  • Brush must be assembled at only one location adjacent to or on the property where it was generated.
  • Place brush separate from other items and at least 3-feet away from all other objects.
