Curbside yard trimming collection is now part of curbside composting collection. Put your yard trimmings, leaves and small branches directly into your green composting cart, along with food scraps and food-soiled paper. Fill your green cart first and use lawn and leaf bags or a reusable a reusable container that is no larger than 34-gallons and no heavier than 50 pounds. Small branches (no longer than 5 feet and no thicker than 3 inches in diameter) should be stacked into manageable bundles no heavier than 30 pounds. Yard trimmings placed at the curb in plastic bags will be collected as trash and will be subject to extra trash fees. Brush and tree limbs too large to be collected during regular yard trimmings collection can be collected during periodic large brush collection.
