The final opening for the City of York’s Yard Waste Drop-off will be this coming Saturday, December 7th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Customers must provide proof of residency with a driver’s license or current utility bill.
The yard waste site will then be closed for the winter, January through March. Weather permitting, the site will reopen in April, on the first Saturday of each month.
Final Curbside Collections of Yard Waste by the City’s hauler, Republic Services, will take place on Monday, December 9th in the Monday refuse area and on Tuesday, December 10th in the Tuesday refuse area.
Grass clippings are not part of the yard waste program. Grass should either be left on the lawn or bagged with the normal trash limit. Do not mix grass with yard waste.
Yard Waste Must Be Properly Prepared for Curbside Collection in One of These Ways:
- Place in authorized yellow yard waste cans (Max. 40 pounds)
- Place in biodegradable paper yard waste bags only (Do not use any plastic bags.)
- Bundle branches (Max. branch 4” diameter; Max. bundle 3′ length and 40 pounds)
Yellow Yard Waste Cans and Biodegradable Paper Yard Waste Bags are still available on sale (this week only) at the Public Works office, 101 South George Street. Proof of residency is required. Paper leaf and yard waste bags which are sold at retail stores may also be used.
During the off-season, mid-December through the end of February, yard waste is to be prepared and placed as normal trash and will count in the normal can/bag limit. The curbside yard waste program will resume March 2nd, weather permitting.
