First, remember that all recyclables must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. If you have landscapers working on your property, you may want to schedule them to come on a different day.
Here’s a brush pile I spotted last week. Oops! That orange sticker means that it was set out improperly. In this case, it was piled loose at the curb, without having been tied into bundles.
When I spoke with the residents, they asked why all the yard trim had to be bundled or put in bags. "It’s so much, how can we do that?"
In order for yard trim collections to run efficiently, crews need your material to be pick-up ready. If you cannot tie your material into bundles, or put it into paper yard trim bags reusable containers, an alternative is to hire someone to assist.
We’ll pick up all of your prepared yard trim material, year-round—there’s no bag limit, and you don’t need to make a special pickup request.
Thank you for helping our collection crews help you!
