Yard Waste Collection

The City will collect your yard waste on the same collection day as your garbage and recycling. To ensure collection, place proper materials at the curb by 7:00 a.m. Place your items in separate piles at least 3 feet away from other obstacles such as mailboxes, utility poles, and automobiles. The City will collect: grass clippings, leaves, limbs (no longer than 6 feet long or 6 inches in diameter). Please keep leaves separate from branches and limbs. Mulch is available by calling 864-297-8558.
