Yard waste Guidelines:

  • Different trucks collect various types of yard waste and not always at the same time. Therefore, yard waste must be placed in your regular refuse collection area by 7 AM on Monday morning to be collected sometime that week
  • No bags or boxes will be accepted – only open containers not exceeding 33-gallons in size
  • Yard waste containers may not have lids and must be marked with the complete word "yard waste" in large letters on all sides of the can.
  • All yard waste containers must have drainage holes in the bottom of the can and must have graspable handles of adequate strength for lifting.
  • Limbs 1"-12" in diameter and in excess of 4 ft. must be neatly stacked in the regular refuse collection area with cut ends facing one direction towards the street or alley. 
  • Plants, twigs, and any bush trimmings smaller than 1" diameter, must be placed in open containers not exceeding 45-pounds, or, bound together in bundles not exceeding 4-feet in length or 45-pounds in weight using cotton or sisal twine only.  Bagged items and unbound loose piles will not be picked-up! 
  • Tree stumps or branches larger than 12" in diameter may be placed for collection, but will be picked up separately from the other yard waste. 
  • The Borough does not collect grass clippings. 
  • Pumpkins, gourds, hay bales, and other vegetation used for seasonal decorations will be collected as yard waste.
