Why wasn't my yard waste or brush collected?
Bags containing sod and/or dirt can not be collected as these items are not accepted for composting. Bags which exceed the 30 pound weight limit cannot be collected.

Brush is collected from each home once per month from April through November. Brush must meet size requirements to ensure the safety of the personnel operating the chipping machine.
