You can get free curbside removal of yard waste and bundled wood for residents of the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island.
All residents of Brooklyn and Queens must schedule an appointment with the City when discarding tree prunings, firewood, and other organic and wood debris. The City chips the wood in these areas to control the population of the Asian Longhorned Beetle.
Missed wood pickup appointments are honored. Leave the wood debris out on the curb for pick up within the next few days after the missed appointment. You do not need to schedule a new appointment and the City will not issue you a violation.
