What is yard waste and brush?

  • Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass, and non-woody organic garden waste only. Yard waste does not include sod, dirt, sand, gravel, or rocks.
  • Brush is wood waste from bushes and trees that is less than 4 inches in diameter, and no greater than 4 feet in length.

How should I dispose of yard waste and brush at the curb?
The Solid Waste Division conducts annual curbside collection of yard waste and brush during the spring and fall. All curbside yard waste and brush collections take place only on the weeks designated and only on your regular trash collection day for that week. A separate collection vehicle is dispatched to collect only yard waste and brush during the following designated collection weeks.

Preparing your yard waste and brush for curbside pickup

Leaves, grass clippings, plant waste, and light trimmings too small to bundle: use paper leaf bags or reusable containers marked "yard waste." Bags and containers cannot exceeded 40 pounds and 35 gallons.

Brush (sticks, twigs, branches, and shrubs): Pieces cannot exceed 4 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length. Bundle and tie with string or twine (no wire), or place in a reusable container marked "yard waste." Bundles and any yard waste or brush not conforming to these guidelines will not be collected and will be left at the curb.

Note: Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected.
