As part of its service to the Town, the Public Works Department collects yard waste from residential addresses every Thursday from mid-May to September. Waste is collected, processed, and the compost used in municipal greenspaces and projects.
Acceptable materials at this time are grass clippings and leaves only.
Twigs, branches, and other plant materials are not part of the compost program and will not be picked up curbside. Town residents can dispose of twigs, branches, stumps, and root balls free of charge at the Valleyview Landfill during regular landfill hours, Tuesdays and Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Bundled tree branches and twigs may also be disposed of during the Town’s annual Large Item Pick Up Program, which usually occurs in May each year. Further details on that program can be found on this website in April 2022.
- Acceptable yard waste intended for compost must be placed in a clear bag.
- Place bags intended for composting curbside, on your property. Please ensure their placement does not obstruct the roadway or the sidewalk.
- To ensure the health and safety of our sanitation workers, the total weight of each bag must not exceed 40 pounds – if you can lift the bag with one hand, it is considered a safe weight for handling. If a bag is deemed too heavy for lifting, it will not be picked up.
For further information on the Yard Waste Program, please call the Public Works Department, (780) 524-5154.
Thanks for your co-operation.
