Two hopper loads of yard waste will be picked up at no charge on Wednesdays as long as the material meets the length and thickness restrictions. Your yard waste should be curbside no later than 7am Wednesdays.
What in the world is a hopper load?
The hopper is the receiving bin on the back of the yard waste trucks. The hopper load size is a pile of yard waste that includes individual pieces no longer than three feet with a total pile dimension of approximately 4 feet wide by 3 feet high by 6 feet in length, or approximately two and three quarter cubic yards. An easier way to remember a hopper load size: it's the equivalent of fourteen yard and leaf bags or fourteen 32-gallon trash cans full.
Please do not put yard waste in the grey trash can or blue recycling can.
It is a violation of the City's ordinance for landscaping companies to leave yard waste within the City. Lawn companies must take all debris with them.
