The City of Marion is announcing that weekly yard waste collection at curbside for the 2018 collection season is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 16 and will run through Friday, December 7.

The curbside pick-up for yard waste generally occurs on the day following each resident’s regular trash collection day (example: Friday trash pick-up - Monday yard waste pick up).  With limited personnel, this schedule may vary.  Note: Residents with an excessive delinquent sanitation and sewer account balance are not eligible for curbside pick-up of yard waste.

There is a limit of 3 bags and/or 3 bundles of limbs/branches that will be collected from each residence per week during the 2018 yard waste season.  Branches must be tied in bundles no larger than 2 feet in diameter and 5 feet in length.  As in the past, the City will not collect grass clippings as yard waste material at curbside.

Residents are encouraged to drop off grass clippings and yard waste materials, free of charge, to Park Enterprise Construction Co., Inc., located at 560 Barks Rd. W. (between S. Prospect St./Rt. 4 S. and the Barks Rd. overpass).  Requirements for grass and yard waste drop off are:

  1. Must stop at office or other designated location to verify proof of City residency (i.e. license, utility bill, etc.)
  2. Items being dropped off must be weighed by Park Enterprise employee before materials are discarded.
  3. Residents using plastic bags are required to remove waste from bags and then discard of plastic bags properly.  Biodegradable paper bags are available at most local retail stores.

Also, note that the City of Marion is not responsible for the collection and/or disposal of trees or large amounts of brush cut and/or removed from personal property.  Disposal of trees and/or large amounts of brush from personal property is the property owner’s responsibility.  These items may be taken, FREE OF CHARGE for all city residents, to Park Enterprise Construction (560 Barks Rd. W.) for disposal.
