There is a limit of 3 bags and/or 3 bundles of limbs/branches collected from each residence per week during the yard waste season. Yard waste collection typically occurs from mid-April through mid-December; however, this schedule may be adjusted as needed.
As in the past, the City will not collect grass clippings as yard waste material at curbside. Branches must be tied in bundles no larger than 2 feet in diameter and 5 feet in length.
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:
- Must stop at office or other designated location to verify proof of City residency (i.e. license, utility bill, etc.).
- Items being dropped off must be weighed by Park Enterprise employee before materials are discarded.
- Residents using plastic bags are required to remove waste from bags and then discard of plastic bags properly. Paper biodegradable bags are available at most local retail stores.

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.
