2021 Spring Clean Up  
In the spring, yard waste will be collected curbside and city crews will be in your neighborhood the working day following your regular refuse collection day during a two-week period. The spring collection will begin Monday, April 12, 2021 for a 2-week period and end on Friday, April 23, 2021. If schedules are delayed due to unforeseen difficulties, service may be extended one week to compensate for lost time. Please observe the following guidelines for the spring yard waste program:
•  Yard waste must be separated from refuse, placed in paper biodegradable bags, buckets or baskets only, and placed on the terrace (not in the street) for collection.
•  Corrugated boxes are not acceptable containers.
•  Biodegradable paper bags when filled with yard waste shall not exceed a 50# weight limit.
•  Buckets and baskets must have external handles and shall not exceed 33 gallons and 30# weight limit.
•  Leaves not collected last fall should be placed in paper bags for collection or brought to Bucklin's Tree Service.
•  Branches and limbs should be placed loose on the terrace and will be collected during branch and limb collection.

The 2021 Yard Waste / Brush drop off will be at Bucklin's Tree Service (until further notice)
