GENERAL GUIDELINES

  • There will  be no collection on Memorial Day and Labor Day. Schedules will shift by one day following the holiday.

  • Yard debris must be out by 6AM on your scheduled day to ensure proper collection.
  • If you live on a private drive, please take materials to the nearest public street.
  • We do not collect stumps, rocks, stones, metal, lumber, plastics, glass, fencing or waste materials. PLEASE NO SOD.
  • Our schedule may vary slightly due to weather conditions and volume of debris.  We appreciate your patience.
  • Yard debris generated by hired contractors must be removed as part of their service.
