Sound Off: When will the city begin to pick up yard waste for recycling this year?
The city’s curbside yard trimmings collection began Monday. City’s crews will make weekly pickups on Mondays through mid-December, except on holidays. Materials should be set out by 6 a.m. in a can, city cart or compostable paper bag. Plastic bags are not allowed. Yard trimmings, grass clippings, leaves and small brush and garden debris are taken to the City’s Wood Recycling and Compost Facility, instead of being sent to the landfill.
