Curbside Collection Schedule
- Yard waste is separately collected once a week from households that receive curbside garbage collection.
- Yard waste is collected on your first garbage collection day each week. For example, if your garbage is collected Monday and Thursday, your yard waste is collected on Mondays.
- View Solid Waste & Recycling Collection Map to determine your collection day.
Yard waste must be placed immediately behind the curb, or within the swale area if there is no curb, by 7 a.m. on your collection day.
Yard waste consists of, but is not limited to:
- Grass clippings
- Palm fronds
- Shrub and tree trimmings
- Tree branches
Small yard waste (e.g. grass clippings, leaves, and shrub and tree trimmings) must be placed either directly into your own personal garbage can or in clear plastic garbage bags.
Large yard waste (e.g. tree limbs and palm fronds) do not need to be bagged, bundled or containerized but cannot be larger than eight (8) inches in diameter and no longer than six (6) feet in length.
Yard waste should be placed at the curb no earlier than 5 p.m. the day before your scheduled yard waste collection.
