Yard debris explanation

Yard debris will have to be disposed of in your curbside recycling or by calling a disposal company. 

If you have recently completed a Do-It-Yourself remodeling project or have materials leftover from hiring someone for remodeling, you will have to self-haul or contact a disposal company. Please see the sidebar for more disposal options. 


Are you a senior or disabled resident and can’t get items to us?

You may schedule a curbside pickup. One pickup load per address and all items must be placed in the driveway.
