New Rules for Yard Waste Pick Up

Beginning in March 2017, Republic Services will only pick up yard waste (e.g., grass clippings, leaves, branches no longer than 4 feet) that is bagged in paper bags or put out in reusable containers. They will not pick up yard waste in plastic bags.

Our cluster's scheduled yard waste pick up day is Wednesday.

The last day for yard waste pickup for 2017 will be Wednesday, December 20. Yard waste pickup will resume again in Spring 2018. Between December 25 and sometime in March 2018, please put your yard waste out on regular trash pickup days.

Note: Yard waste does not include tree stumps, discarded lumber, flower pots and planters, food waste, etc. Republic Services will not pick up these kinds of items.
