Yard Waste Guidelines


  • Customer-owned containers used for yard waste should be marked with the letter X or the words Yard waste only.
  • Loose yard waste must be bagged in standard paper yard waste bags or placed in designated 32-gallon or smaller yard waste cans or place in Republic Services yard waste carts.
  • Tree limbs that are placed in cans cannot be above the top rim of can.
  • Tree limbs and branches less than 6 inches in diameter must be tied (with twine, not wire) in bundles no bigger than four 4 feet long by 24 inches in diameter. However, no bundle is to weigh more than 75 pounds. Limbs and branches 6 inches or more in diameter are considered bulky trash.
  • Yard waste carts are to be used for yard waste only.
  • Yard waste in plastic bags will not be accepted.
  • Yard waste mixed with trash cannot be collected.
  • Yard waste to be collected in the months of January and February must be scheduled by calling Republic Services, and waste must be properly tagged with purchased Yard Waste Tags.
