CITY LEAF PICK UP PROGRAM TO RUN THROUGH DECEMBER 14
Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. today announced the launch of the annual city leaf pick up and yard waste recycling program for city residents. The program will run now through December 14 and allows residents to dispose of yard waste in conjunction with their regular trash pickup by Best Way.
To be eligible for pickup, all materials must be securely contained in biodegradable bags or open containers that weigh no more than 50 lbs. each. Plastic bags are not eligible. All bags, bundles and containers need to be within 4 feet of the curbside or alley based upon the location of the resident’s regular trash pickup.
Materials eligible for pick up include leaves, grass clippings, weeds, brush trimmings from shrubbery and tree branches. Branches can be no larger than 3 inches in diameter and no more than 4 feet long.
Pick up will occur the day after regular trash pickup as long as bags are prepared and in position the day of trash pickup. Free biodegradable bags will be available from the city as follows:
Residents may also supply their own biodegradable bags which are available through regular retail outlets.
