Republic Services Yard Waste Collection Program

2019 Schedule: April 11th – November 28th

During the months when yard waste is NOT collected by Republic, it can be placed in plastic bags and put out on bulk day. Plastic bags are acceptable and brown lawn/leaf bags don’t need to be used because it does not get recycled as yard waste during these months. Yard waste collection will resume in mid-April 2019 and at that time, brown lawn/leaf bags will need to be used again.

The Yard Waste Collection Program is a service provided by Republic Services. If you have garbage or recycle collection, bulk pickup, and/or yard waste collection questions please call Republic Waste Services at (440) 458-3216.

  • All grass clippings and other yard waste should be placed in brown paper yard bags or a can clearly marked YARD WASTE not to exceed 50 pounds.
  • Brush and small tree trimmings must be cut, bundled and securely tied not exceeding 4 feet in length or 50 pounds.
  • Christmas trees will be collected the 2nd and 3rd garbage collection days of January.
  • Grass clippings and other yard waste may be placed in trash cart & will be collected with the rubbish materials.
  • Landscapers and tree services are responsible for removal of any yard waste they generate while working at a residence.
