Collection of yard waste will begin April 4. Bundled brush no larger than two feet in diameter and four feet in length and yard waste such as grass clippings, leaves, shrubs and vines will be picked up on regular refuse collection days.
A green yard waste sticker must be attached to each brush bundle, 32-gallon paper bag and rigid container. Stickers are $2.45 each.
Residents are urged to look for alternatives to bagging yard waste such as mulching mowers, leaf shredders or backyard compost piles.
