The City of Marion is announcing that weekly curbside yard waste collection for the 2023 collection season will begin on Monday, April 10 and run through Friday, December 8, 2023.

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 collecting yard waste, 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 2023 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. Please note: yard waste collections that exceed the limitations listed above may result in a special pick-up charge.

Residents are encouraged to drop off grass clippings and yard waste materials, free of charge, to Outdoor Resource Supply (formerly Park Enterprise), which is 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 where verification of City residency (i.e. license, utility bill, etc.) may be required.
  2. Items being dropped off must be weighed by Outdoor Resource Supply 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. These items may be taken, FREE OF CHARGE for all city residents, to Outdoor Resource Supply (560 Barks Rd. W.) for disposal.
