When preparing yard waste…

All yard waste must be separated from any trash, garbage or rubbish.

Limbs

Limbs left for the City must be no larger than forty-eight (48) inches in length and five (5) inches in diameter. All limbs must be parallel to the curbline and placed off street pavement and between roadside drain or ditch and front property line. A maximum volume of one hundred twenty-eight (128) cubic ft. (8ft. x 4ft. X 4ft.) or a pick-up truck bed is set per week for every household.

Yard Waste

Yard waste includes grass, pine straw, weeds, hedge clippings, garden waste and leaves (excluding leaves only during the seasonal pick up dates.) All loose yard waste should be contained in 30-gallon biodegradable paper bags or 32-gal. (max.) container that won’t hold water.

Leaf Season

Bags or containers are not required for leaves during this season. Leaves, excluding limbs, branches and pine cones, must be in a neat pile off the street and between roadside drain or ditch and front property line during this season.

Contractors

All contractors are responsible for the proper disposal of any rubbish, building rubbish, garbage, trash or yard waste created.  If contractors neglect, this responsibility falls to the property owner.
