Yard Waste Collection

Yard waste is collected on the same day as regular trash. Have your items in the right-of-way for collection after noon the day before and no later than 6 a.m. on the day of collection.


  • Limbs must be no more than 4 feet in length and 6 inches in diameter.
  • City trash customers can set out up to 7 cubic yards of yard waste in the right-of-way for collection. This is equal to a SINGLE pile approximately 5-feet wide, 11-feet long and 3½-feet high – about the same size as eight large size garbage or recycling carts. All types of yard waste are part of the maximum volume.
  • No amount of oversize piles or more than one pile will be collected until all violations are corrected.
  • All loose yard waste (grass clippings, pine straw, vines, pine cones and leaves) must be containerized. A container may be a yard debris bag, a box, or a personal 35-gallon container (not to exceed 50 lbs.).
  • Yard waste (of any kind) will not be collected if it is in wheelbarrows, trailers, tarps, or the city-provided trash or recycling cart.
  • Yard waste created by commercial contractors may not be collected by city crews.
  • Please do not mix non-organic items (roofing tiles, scrap lumber, rocks, etc.) with yard waste.
  • Yard waste should never be placed in the street. It must be placed only in the right-of-way for collection and cannot block water meters, storm drains or obstruct the view of motorists.
  • Violations of Recycling & Trash Services Codes are subject to a $50 per day civil fine.
  • Please be patient with us in times when storms generate large volumes of debris.
  • Yard Waste cannot pick up Palm Tree trunks, root balls/stumps, dirt, bricks, rocks, or concrete.
