Even though Yard Debris is free, it is still considered a special collection. Our crews do not drive through the entire city looking for yard waste, but instead each week they are given a route of only those addresses where the pickup was requested. We also only pick up at those addresses who made requests. Even if other yard debris is out along a street where we are picking up we do not take it because we want our residents to get into the habit of calling us to get put on the list each week they need yard debris picked up.

Yard Waste includes normal lawn and garden debris such as leaves, brush, grass clippings, twigs, pruning, and small branches (not more than 3 inches in diameter and not longer than 4 feet). Bamboo is not accepted in the City's Yard Waste and must be called in as a Bulky Pickup.
Yard Debris Collections are made on most Wednesdays. View the Yard Debris calendar for the complete collection schedule. Requests for pickups must be made by the end of the day Monday. During April, the Department will offer an additional Monday pickup, which must be scheduled before the end of the day Thursday.
