Curbside Collection:

Fee for the curbside collection of yard waste will be $9.60 per month per rollout for 7 months of service (April through November). Additional pickups will be $9.60 for each additional pickup.

The curbside collection of yard waste is an opt-in program where homeowners receive, on a voluntary basis by subscription only, 96 gallon roll-outs. The roll-outs are tan in color and heat stamped Yard Waste so that homeowners will know what to put in the roll-out. The tan Yard Waste roll-outs are for only the following: grass clippings, leaves, and woody materials (limbs, brush, and branches). No trash, sod, dirt, or sand should be placed in the roll-out.

Please be careful to not overload the roll-out. The roll-out maximum capacity is 300 pounds. Also, the lid must be able to shut.
