To continue to serve our citizens during a season that saw late-falling leaf debris, the collection of yard waste, including bagged or containerized leaves, will be extended by one week this year. That means each collection day from Dec. 13-17. will be a neighborhood’s last of the year.

Individuals should place their bagged or containerized leaves on the easement alongside their trash and recycling carts. Pick up of bagged leaves and yard waste occurs the same day as your normal trash day.

After a neighborhood’s final pick up, the city’s trash contractor will not collect any bagged leaves or containerized leaves, or any other yard waste, until March 2022.

A neighborhood’s final loose-leaf pick up occurred on their trash day Nov. 29-Dec. 3.

If residents still have yard waste or bagged leaves to dispose of in 2021, they can drop it off at the DPW yard on the third Saturday of each month. The next scheduled DPW yard day is Saturday, Dec. 18, 2021 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.
