Sound Off: What will happen to yard waste under the city’s new plans for trash?
Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this information: There are no proposed changes to the city’s yard trimmings collection program at this time. Residents may continue to set out yard trimmings (grass, leaves and woody debris) in cans, city carts or compostable paper bags by 6 a.m. on Mondays, March through mid-December, for composting. Brush placed in these containers should not protrude more than one foot above the container opening or exceed 65 pounds. Bundled brush is not accepted for curbside collection on Mondays.
