Tan, 95-gallon yard waste carts are to be used in place of paper yard waste bags.
The only yard waste materials that are accepted are:
- Grass clippings
- Weeds and brush
- Edgings without dirt
- Twigs and small branches that are less than four inches in diameter.
Contamination charges may apply for items such as trash, wood chips, dirt, rocks, mulch, and plastic bags.
Do not use plastic bags to collect yard waste and instead keep it loose in yard carts. Yard carts can be obtained by visiting the Utility Billing Department at City Hall, 2310 Second Street. Sign-up early, as these carts are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Active recycling customers with accounts in good standing qualify for the program with a $25 refundable deposit.
Registration for yard waste carts may be completed in-person at the Utility Billing department.
