Guidelines for routine yard waste collection

  • Yard Waste Collection Guidelines
  • Yard waste items must be:
    • curbside from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
    • within three feet of the curb or edge of the street
    • at least three feet from other fixed objects

Routine yard trash

Any vegetative matter resulting from residential property lawn and landscaping maintenance including:

  • Shrub and tree trimmings
  • Grass clippings
  • Palm fronds
  • Branches

Non-routine yard trash

Material placed curbside that does not meet the county guidelines of routine yard trash will be tagged with a non-collection notice, which serves to inform the resident that the material is non-conforming debris and therefore cannot be collected. If a material is non-conforming, then disposal is the responsibility of the resident. Routine yard trash does not include:

  • Whole trees/tree trunks
  • Stumps/logs
  • Root systems
  • Land clearing debris (i.e. rocks, bushes)
