Yard Waste Collection

Residents have the option to enroll in the Yard Waste Collection Program, offering convenient yard waste pickup by the City for $100 per season.  This fee will be conveniently billed to the property owner's City utility bill.

Residents not requiring a seasonal subscription can dispose of yard waste at the Millennium Waste Landfill

Collection Schedule

Yard waste and brush will be collected one day per week through the season which runs Monday, April 3, 2023 through Thursday, December 7, 2023.    

To determine your yard waste collection day please refer to the Yard Waste Collection Map (when in the map just enter the address).  

The Holiday Collection Schedule will indicate if yard waste collection will be delayed due to a holiday.
