Waste & Recycling Services

Leaf and pumpkin drop-off locations open until November 9
Residents can bring their snow-damaged branches and tree debris as well as leaves and pumpkins to most of The City’s leaf & pumpkin drop-off locations. All material will be composted and mulched to keep out of our landfills. Use paper yard waste bags for your leaves and pumpkins and they will get composted too.

You + recycling = A big difference
Keep grass, leaves and other organics, including food waste out of your blue cart. If your blue cart recyclables become contaminated with these materials, they may not be properly recycled and end up in the landfill.

When you put your yard waste in the garbage it gets compacted in the landfill and doesn't turn into soil because there's no oxygen. But by composting, you can turn organic materials into material that is useful again. Watch this educational video to find out why some things are just too good to waste.
