From the first week of March to the first week of December, the city collects yard waste on what is commonly called Green Wednesdays. During the winter months, when city-wide collection is discontinued, residents may call Public Works and schedule their yard waste cart be emptied on an upcoming Wednesday.Like household trash and recycling, yard waste must be placed in a city-provided cart (green with brown/tan lid) for automated curbside collection.No Green Wednesday yard waste collections will be completed during weeks with a holiday. Please remember that no man-made product may be placed in the cart. For further information, please reference the helpful links below.
