Here are some important notes to remember:

  • All yard trash should be properly prepared for normal curbside collection.

  • Keep vegetative yard trash separated from other garbage, wood, and other materials. If materials are mixed, the crews cannot pick it up.

  • Small branches, leaves, grass clippings, small yard waste piles, and palm fronds must be containerized (40 gallons or less) or bagged.

  • Containers and/or bags CANNOT exceed 50 pounds.

  • Large branches must be cut into 4-foot lengths and stacked neatly curbside.

  • WM will collect up to 5 cubic yards (4′ x 4′ x 8′) of yard waste each week.
