Yard Waste Pick-Up

Yard waste that is generated from normal lawn care needs to be separated and placed at the curb for pickup. Yard waste pickup is not on a set schedule; items may take up to two weeks to be picked up.  Do not bag leaves or yard debris.  Do not place yard debris such as pine straw and grass in the gutter line for pickup because this will block the storm drains.  Separation needs to be as follows:

  • Pine straw, pine cones, and leaves can be together

  • Vines separate

  • Sticks and twigs can be together

  • Limbs and branches together with cut ends facing street

Limbs and branches can be no longer than 4 inches in diameter and 6 feet in length.  Yard debris piles can not be more than 4 feet high, 8 feet long, and 6 feet wide .

There are some items that will NOT be picked up by the town.  They are as follows:

  • Debris or yard waste generated by a contractor/yard maintenance crews.  This material should be disposed of by the contractor not placed on the curbside. 

  • Land clearing debris
       - Debris collected or caused by heavy equipment

  • Building materials, demolition materials, shingles, or cross-ties of any nature

  • Tree trunks, tree stumps, rocks, or masonry products

  • Dirt or soil
