Yard waste Wednesdays. The City only collects yard debris on Wednesdays.

Place all yard waste by the curb before 7am on Wednesdays. Make sure that branches are cut to 3 feet or less in length and are 5 inches thick or less. Do not allow landscaping companies to leave yard debris within the City. This is against the City's code. Keep leaves, grass clippings, and branches out of the street and storm drains. Bag or place in cans all small, loose pieces and grass clippings.

Unscheduled Excess Waste
When items are left in the right-of-way for pick up that have not been previously arranged for, an attempt will be made to notify the resident that collections must arranged and paid for. Should these items be discovered again on the next scheduled pickup date, where collection arrangements have not been made, the City will remove the items and bill the property owner or tenant per the City's ordinance and a notification will be sent to the Code Enforcement Officer for further action, if necessary.
