Yard waste collection has resumed

From the East Express Newsletter:

"The City's yard waste pick-up program will resume April 7. Pick up regulations and schedules are the same as last year. Reminder: all loose materials must be in paper bags or reusable containers on the outlawn this time of year and cannot be raked out into the street."

Regular Yard Waste Collection

The Public Works Department weekly provides curb-side yard waste collection services to all EGR residents annually. This begins on the Monday of the first full week of April, through Friday of the first full week of December. City crews use an established route to collect yard waste from each house. Guidelines for yard waste pickup are:

  • Grass clippings and small, loose yard debris must be placed in paper yard-waste bags or reusable containers. Plastic bags are not accepted.
  • Bags and containers placed for pickup must not exceed 40 pounds or a 32-gallon capacity
  • Brush must be cut into six-foot lengths and tree logs may not exceed 12 inches in diameter.
  • All items for collection should be placed on the out-lawn (between the curb and sidewalk), not in the street.
  • Except during the fall leaf collection program, it is preferred that yard waste not be placed out for collection earlier than one day prior to the scheduled day for collection.
