How to make a request:
- Call 311 or 574-5000 or email [email protected]
- Be prepared with the following information or include in your email: First and last name, address, phone number, set out location (front, rear, side, alley, etc.), and approximate number of containers, bags, or bundles.
- Your appointment will be scheduled on your regular collection day THE FOLLOWING WEEK. (Example: If your regular yard waste collection day is Thursday, and your request is made on Monday, February 8, your yard waste will not be collected until Thursday, February 18.)
- Set out yard waste no earlier than 4 p.m. the day before your appointment and no later than 6 a.m. the day of your appointment.
