  • Bag it, tag it, or wheel it: Put yard waste in a Compost It! bag or a store-brand bag with a Compost It! sticker attached. If you have the Compost It! cart service, you can put your yard waste in it. 
  • Set out on time: Set your tree and yard waste at the curb by 6 AM on your regular collection day. Winter collection occurs December 26, 2022 - January 6, 2023.
