Yard Waste Collection Program
Residents may choose to sign up for the yard waste subscription. Yard waste will still need to be bagged and bundled as described below, however, no stickers are necessary. Subscriptions are not eligible for proration. Residents who wish to sign up for the landscape waste subscription should contact our customer service department at (800) 244-1977
Residents must place one (1) yard waste sticker to every bag of yard waste placed out for collection. Residents who place yard waste at the curbmust purchase special stickers from local retailers and apply the stickers to bags of grass or leaves and bundles of brush. Please see the list of sticker retailers below.
30-Gallon Kraft Paper Bags Required: Leaves and grass clippings must be placed in two ply, 30 gallon, Kraft type paper bags. The sticker must be applied to the bag so as to be readily visible from the street. Groot will not collect bags unless a sticker is attached. Bags must not weigh more than 50 pounds each. Plastic tape and silver duct tape must be not used to close the bag because it will not decompose in the compost.
Brush, Small Limbs: Brush and small limbs must be tied into bundles with biodegradable twine that will compost. Nylon will not compost. Bundles must have a sticker attached to them or they will not be collected. Bundles must not exceed 5 feet in length, 2 feet in diameter, or 50 pounds. Limbs must not exceed 6 inches in diameter because the compost grinder will not be able to grind larger diameter limbs.
Logs: Logs greater than 6 inches in diameter will be disposed of in a landfill and should be placed with garbage/refuse. No sticker is required. There is a 1 cubic yard limit.
Sticker Return: Stickers left over at the end of the season may be used for the next Yard Waste season. Please do NOT return unused stickers to area merchants.
Christmas trees : Christmas trees will be collected on your regular landscape collection day from December 31st through January 8th. Stickers are not necessary for Christmas trees. Plastic bags must be removed from the tree because the plastic will not decompose in a compost pile. Bags of late falling leaves and branch bundles can be placed at he curb with Christmas trees.
Christmas Garland and Wreaths: These are to be disposed of with your garbage and refuse, and are not considered to be landscape waste.
