If containers are not feasible for yard waste, place brush and tree trimmings in stacks no longer than 4 feet in length and 18 inches in diameter. Stacks do not need to be bundled with twine, but each stack must have 1 garbage/yard waste sticker attached. Each stack must weigh less than 50 pounds.
Reminder:It is illegal to pile, blow or rake leaves onto the streets. Doing so can clog storm sewers, preventing them from working properly during a storm and possibly leading to flooding.
Items that can be included with your yard waste/organics collection:
Other Compostable Items
Paper milk cartons
Do Not Include
Stickers on produce
Any sort of plastic
Diapers or pet litter.
