This year, there is a schedule change for yard waste pickup. Instead of Saturday pickup dates, the yard waste will be picked up on the municipal customer’s normal trash pickup day. For example, if you get your trash picked up on Mondays, you will get your yard waste picked up on Mondays for four consecutive weeks. Please follow the advisement below for what is allowed for the yard waste.
For customers on the Town Trash System, Republic Services will be picking up leaves, twigs, and lawn clippings in biodegradable bags or open containers weighing less than 50 lbs.
Republic will be picking up yard waste during the following weeks, Monday through Friday. The yard waste pickup will occur on your normal trash pickup day during these weeks.
