Please place yard waste bags in a separate pile from trash bags. Bags must not exceed fifty pounds. Click here for more information regarding curbside yard waste collection.

The City Compost Site is located on Oakwood Avenue just past Oakwood Cemetery. Residents interested in using the Compost Site must obtain a permanent window sticker (one per address) from City Hall.

Bundled Brush & Branch Pick-Up

Special Brush pickups, due to weather events, will be conducted at the discretion of the Parks & Forestry Director. Please visit the yard waste collection of our website for more information.
