Leaf & Yard Waste

From spring through fall (approximately April through November), we collect leaf and yard waste in urban areas. Residents can also bring leaf and yard waste to all six of our waste facilities during that time. 

By composting these materials, we're saving landfill space, reducing methane gas emissions, and creating a valuable resource for improving soil.

Climate Change Lens

Hold off on Spring yard cleanup until daytime temperatures consistently reach over 10 degrees. By raking your leaves too early, you can disturb vital pollinator species before they get a chance to emerge from under our leaf litter and begin pollinating.
