City begins special pick-up service for yards

January 24, 2014


Mild weekend temperatures this winter have led to larger piles of yard waste left out on residential curbs, Lawrence officials report.

As a solution, the city has started a pilot program to collect yard waste separate from trash for the remainder of the season. The special service will be available until March, when the city-wide Monday pick-ups resume. To sign up for pick-up service, call the Solid Waste Division at 832-3032 or fill out the form at

Materials must be left in cans, city carts or compostable paper yard waste bags. Visit for a complete list of yard-waste collection guidelines.
