Leaf & Yard Waste Collection

Paper Leaf Bags           

Paper bags are the best option for leaf and yard waste collection!

During the composting process: paper bags grind easily and break down quickly when they are blended with food waste from green carts. Plastic bags and plastic-type biodegradable bags get stuck in grinding equipment and cause plastic contamination in the compost. In 2020, residents will be required to transition from plastic leaf bags to paper ones.          

Paper bags are available at most hardware, department and grocery stores. Leaf and yard waste may also be collected in your green cart. Please make sure the lid can close.

Branches and limbs may be up to 3 feet long, individual pieces no bigger than 2 inches in diameter. Branches must be tied into bundles weighing up to 55 lbs per bundle.
