Landfill, Yard Waste Depot Hours, Weekly Garbage Collection to Shift to Summer Schedule
As warmer weather approaches and signs of spring appear, weekly garbage collection resumes and the City’s Landfill and Yard Waste Depot hours expand.
Beginning the week of Monday, April 3, residents can roll out their brown carts each week on their collection day. Weekly garbage collection will end with the City-wide rollout of green Food and Yard Waste carts to all homes in late summer.
Starting Monday, April 10, the Landfill will operate on its summer schedule, open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Sunday. The entry gates close 15 minutes prior to closing to allow vehicles to unload and exit the Landfill by closing time.
The free Yard Waste Depot located near the Landfill will reopen for the season on Monday, April 10, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Residents can drop off leaves, grass clippings, bush and tree trimmings and other yard waste.
Residents are reminded that plastic garbage bags are not compostable and yard waste must be removed from plastic bags at the Yard Waste Depot site. Great alternatives include paper yard waste bags or reusable containers.
For households participating in the food and yard waste pilot, green cart service will switch to weekly collection beginning the week of Monday, April 3; however, brown cart collection will remain biweekly.
