Yard Waste Collection Resumes in mid-March
Yard waste collection began on residents' regular refuse collection day the week of March 18. A new feature has been added starting this year: no stickers will be required for yard waste the first two collections of the season (weeks of March 18 and March 25). The remainder of the season beginning with the week of Monday, April 1, through November 30 shall require a disposal sticker. To learn more about yard waste, click here.
A newer feature of the refuse program is the option of organic composting with yard waste. You can now mix select food scraps in your yard waste cart, yard waste can, or your brown Kraft bag.
Acceptable food scrap items that may be added to your yard waste cart, yard waste can, or brown Kraft bag include: Fruits & vegetables including unpainted holiday pumpkins; breads, grains, pasta & cereal; dairy & eggs including eggshells, but no liquids; coffee grounds, filters & tea bags.
Unacceptable items: No meat, poultry or seafood; no bones or shells; no fats, grease or oil; no liquids; no pet waste; no packaging; no paper plates or any other service ware (even if marked compostable); no plastics, styrofoam, glass, metal, or diapers.
