Leaf and Yard Debris, and Clean Wood

What is leaf and yard debris? It's all of the following, and as of July 1, 2016, it is banned from the landfill.

  • Leaves
  • Grass clippings
  • Weeds
  • Garden debris
  • House plants
  • Twigs and brush less than 1 inch in diameter

As of that date, haulers who offer trash collection must also offer a service to collect leaf and yard debris, separate from other waste. They may charge for this service. Residents may also bring this material to their transfer station where they may be charged a tipping fee.

Clean wood or "wood waste" is also banned from the landfill as of July 1, 2016. What is "clean wood?" It includes trees, untreated and unpainted wood including dimensional lumber, and other natural woody debris, including tree stumps, brush and limbs 1" or greater in diameter, root mats, and logs.

Neither haulers nor transfer stations are required to collect clean wood. However, transfer stations may offer a spot for dropping off clean wood for other residents to pick up for reuse.
