Yard Waste Collection Begins Next Week

Curbside yard waste and leaves pickup will take place Oct. 7-10, Oct. 21-24 and Nov. 4-7.

All yard waste and leaves to be picked up must be enclosed in “Kraft” brown paper bags or a reusable container. Any yard waste in plastic bags will not be picked up.

Please note that a reusable container is defined as any container constructed of metal or plastic with a capacity not exceeding 30 gallons, a loaded weight of not more than 50 lbs, with a tight-fitting lid and handles of adequate strength for lifting. A cardboard box is not considered a reusable container to hold yard waste or brush.

Brush and branch collection begins October 14-17. All brush and branches must be bundled and tied in one foot diameter bundles not to exceed four feet in length, or can be placed in a reusable container in lengths not to exceed four feet or six inches in diameter.

All materials should be curbside by 6 a.m. or placed out the night before. These will be picked up separately from garbage during designated weeks.

City of Marshfield residents may also drop off yard waste, brush, and branches 24/7 at no charge at Advanced Disposal located at 18th St. and Hume Ave. (501 South Hume Avenue).
