Weather permitting, York City curbside customers may begin to place yard waste at their designated pick-up point for collection on their normal recycling day, beginning Monday, March 5th.
During the yard waste season, March 5th – December 11th this year, all yard waste must be kept separate from the normal trash. Yard Waste must be prepared for collection according to these specifications:
BRUSH: Bundled branches, each branch must be less than 4” in diameter (maximum bundle size: 3’ x 3’ and 40 pounds); or use authorized yellow yard waste cans (maximum: 40 pounds). NO yard waste/branches should extend above the rim of cans or bags.
INCLUDES LEAVES/PRUNINGS/GARDEN RESIDUE (NO GRASS CLIPPINGS):
Use biodegradable kraft paper bags (maximum: 32 gallons; 40 pounds); or use authorized yellow yard waste cans (maximum: 40 pounds). NO yard waste/branches should extend above the rim of cans or bags.
Customers are reminded that plastic bags are NOT allowed for yard waste and will result in no collection. Do NOT line yard waste cans with bags. Grass clippings should be placed in with regular trash and count toward the normal trash bag limit.
