The bundles of brush cannot exceed 50 pounds, and must be no bigger than six feet in length and 18 inches in diameter, with no individual branch exceeding six inches in diameter. Bundles must be tied with string or twine. This program runs from the first full week of April through the second full week of December.

Yard waste ends completely for the season on Friday, Dec. 15, 2017.
