The city will begin picking up yard trimmings on Monday. The service will continue through mid-December on Mondays, except for holidays. This service is separate from trash pickup.
Materials for pick up should be set out on the curb by 6 a.m. Mondays in a city cart, can or compostable paper bag. No plastic bags are allowed.
Yard trimmings, glass clippings, leaves, small brush, garden debris and woody debris can all be collected. Wood should not be bundled or extend past the top of the container more than a foot.
Carts are available for rental from the city for $1.50 per month for a 65-gallon cart and $2 per month for a 90-gallon cart. To rent one, call the city’s solid waste division at 832-3032.
