City-StreetBrush Pick Up is important in spring, summer and fall. Sanitation Crews will pick up 1.5 cubic yards of brush from the curb on your recycling day from March 21 – October 14, 2016.  Brush is branches from trees and shrubs and trimmings from bushes (woody material).

Fall yard waste collection is Sept. 18 – Nov 13, 2016. Yard waste is leaves, weeds, thatch, flowers, vines and other non-fruit vegetable matter.   View the 2016 Yard Waste and Brush Collection information here.  View the real-time leaf collection progress map here.

The City Yards drop off site is available to residents, often at no charge. Items that can be dropped off for FREE at City Yards: daily household garbage, furniture, recycling, metals, automobile and vegetable oil and oil filters, antifreeze, leaves, brush, yard waste (NO grass clippings). Items dropped off for minimal fees: tires, microwaves, concrete, asphalt, ground, and all construction materials including carpeting and padding.
