Yard Waste Program

Beginning in January 2019 yard waste collection will cycle more frequently each Wednesday of non-holiday weeks. This will coincide with the overall Sanitation Modernization initiative that begins January 7th 2019. A hard-stock calendar will follow with the issuance of the new 65-gallon cart along with final details.

November 2018 brochure and calendar

Sanitation Modernization leaves all other aspects of the yard Waste Program in place and unchanged including:

Yard waste will not be collected if it is placed out on collection days that are not designated yard waste days. Please refer to the calendar/schedule for specified days and note that yard waste collection does not happen on weeks with a holiday such as 4th of July week.

Yard waste includes clippings (including grass), branches, brush, etc., The yard waste collection service insures that organic waste is treated as such and taken to a composting site rather than into a landfill.

Other details of the service includes:

  • Leave at the curb
  • Place yard debris directly in trash cans or large brown paper yard waste bags sold at hardware and grocery stores
  • Branches and sticks must be no more than four feet long and should be bundled together and tied with string
  • No plastic bags, please
  • No dirt or stones
  • Program runs all year round once or twice per month on Wednesdays. ( see magnet for dates that are circled.)
  • Yard waste must be out to your curb by 7 am on the scheduled pickup date
  • In the Fall, do not place leaves in with yard waste – utilize the borough’s curb-side Leaf Collection program
