Household yard waste is unlimited. Yard waste is all grass clippings, leaves and small branches from a residential property. A 50 lb. weight limit on all cans with an X and brown paper bags is enforced. All tree branches and bush trimmings need to be cut and bundled no more than 3′-5′ length. In the fall residents may rake their leaves to the curb in a long wind row for vacuuming. Yard Waste season runs typically from the beginning of April to the end of November.
