Large Item Pickup
When? On the 2nd Tuesday of every month. HOWEVER, you must have a green tag from City Hall. Green tags can be purchased for $10 at City Hall. If a large, bulky, or heavy item is left out in front of a residence without a green tag the property owner will be cited with a violation of the Property Maintenance Code. Please place the large items with a green tag on the curb no earlier than 1-2 days before the scheduled pick-up date.
Yard Waste Pick-up
When? Tuesday morning - April through November . Lawn and Leaf bags are available at City Hall: 1 bundle (5 bags per bundle) $2.50 or 3 bundles $6.00.
Put leaves and yard waste into paper landscape bags, or in a container rented from RMS specifically for yard waste. Do not put leaves in plastic bags! Place on the terrace Monday night. Larger yard waste (bushes, trees, limbs, etc.) does not need to be in a container but should be cut into approximately 4 foot long pieces and set to the curb no earlier than 1-2 days before Monday.
The City will collect brush on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month during the spring, summer, and fall. If a contractor maintains your yard or does tree trimming/removal, the contractor is responsible for all clean-up and removal of yard waste.
