Pickup for yard waste, food scraps and organic materials resumes the week of April 6 for residents served by Lakeshore Recycling.
You can use containers no larger than 35 gallons in size or biodegradable paper bags. Each container or biodegradable bag must weigh no more than 50 pounds and must have one yard waste/organics/garbage sticker attached in order to be collected.
In addition to grass clippings, tree trimmings, weeds and other plant materials, you can also include food scraps in with your yard waste. Just be sure you do NOT include grease, cooking oil, any sort of plastic, wooden tools, liquids, rags, cleaning supplies, pet litter, stickers on produce, bottles, or cans. For more information, see the City’s website.
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.
Please note that bulk pickup and electronic recycling have been suspended until further notice during the COVID-19 crisis.
