Why do I need to request a collection?

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.
