Yard waste pick-up usually runs from April 1 through November 30. (Depending on the weather, it may continue into December.) At other times, lawn bags may be taken to the Monmouth Transfer Station at no charge.
You may purchase designated lawn/leaf bags at grocery stores, hardware stores, lumber yards, etc. for use in our lawn waste program. DO NOT use plastic bags.
Grass clippings, small twigs, leaves and yard waste can be put in the designated bags and set out by 7 a.m. for pick-up on your garbage day. Grass should not be mowed into the street.
In the fall, leaves may be raked into the street to be vacuumed by the leaf machine; however, this is a slow process, so if you have many leaves, it may be best to put them in yard waste bags for pick-up.
Holidays for yard waste pick-up are Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and Thanksgiving. If these holidays occur on a weekday, the yard waste schedule will resume the next day.
