Rules for Yard Waste Pick Up
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. Note: The truck comes early, so it's best if your waste is at the curb before 6 a.m.
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.
