Yard Waste, Brush & Compost

Yard waste, bundled brush and compost are collected beginning the first full week of April through the 2nd full week of December on your regular collection day. All waste must be out by 6:00 a.m., including yard waste during the yard waste collection season.

Effective April 1, 2022, trash collection fees will be adjusted by 5 percent, which is the maximum allowed by the Solid Waste Contract since the Consumers Price Index was higher. The 5 percent fees adjustment represents a 74 cent increase for the monthly standard 64-gallon refuse toter to $16.19, and a 7 cents increase for refuse stickers to $1.59.
