Leaf Disposal Information

Leaves, grass clippings and small twigs (less than 1/2 inch in diameter) can be placed curbside to be collected as trash on regularly scheduled trash collection days into:

• Black or brown bags
• Unlined trash containers

Twigs and branches greater than 1/2 inch in diameter cannot be mixed with leaves and grass clippings. There is no limit to the amount of 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.

Leaves may also be composted in the backyard, left on the lawn, or taken to a neighborhood-based leaf and yard waste composting site.
