If you don’t receive organics collection, you must dispose of leaves, grass clippings, and small twigs less than 1/2 inch in diameter with your garbage.
Put your items in a black trash bag or unlined trash can and place curbside for collection on your garbage day.
There is no limit to the amount of leaves or clippings that can be put out for collection as long as they were produced by residents and not landscapers.
It is illegal for commercial landscapers to dispose of yard waste by placing it at the curb for collection. Landscapers and hired professionals must dispose of yard waste and clippings at a permitted composting facility.
To learn how to dispose of tree branches and twigs greater than ½ inch in diameter, visit the Wood Disposal page.
