Landscape Waste Collection
The landscape waste program runs from April 1st to December 15th of each year. Service is provided on the same day as refuse and recycling collection. Yard waste is to be placed in a 30-gallon biodegradable paper bag, bundled or placed in a metal or plastic container up to 33 gallons in size. Bags, bundles and containers may not exceed 50 pounds and are to be placed at the curb for collection. Containers must be marked as yard waste. Bundles cannot exceed 4 feet in length and 2 feet in diameter. Branches within each bundle may not exceed 3 inches in diameter

Annual Spring Clean Up - 2015
Advanced Disposal provides one curbside collection annually at no cost for large items, including white goods, which are not ordinarily collected as part of the weekly residential refuse service. Construction material to be collected during the Annual Spring Clean Up Program is limited to one (1) cubic yard, tires placed at the curb will not be collected. Electronics, including televisions and computers, are also not included in this collection, and should be brought to the City’s Recycling Center at 1180 Half Day Road. Operation hours can be found here.

Advanced Disposal has announced that they will be collecting bulk items set at the curb for residents on the following dates:

April 25th - Residents with regularly scheduled Monday collection
