The City’s Yard Waste Facility at Memorial Stadium will remain closed for June and July and possibly longer. The facility will not open as long as the City furloughs of reduced staffing and hours continues. The drop-off facility may not be used at this time and violators will be prosecuted under the local ordinance for illegal dumping and may be fined up to $600!
York City curbside customers may continue using the weekly curbside yard waste collections. Yard waste should be placed at the designated pick-up point for collection on the normal recycling day.
Yard waste must kept separate from the normal trash and 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.
