How do I dispose of my yard waste and branches?

For disposal of yard waste and branches, residents have the following options:

  • Yard waste, leaves and branches that fit can be disposed of in your green curbside compost bin for residents on the city trash program through Republic Services. Please contact Republic Services or your trash hauler for details on the services available. 
  • The City offers a free annual Spring Cleanup event in April/May for disposal of branches and leaves.  More information can be found on the City’s Spring Cleanup webpage.
