Republic Services Yard Waste Collection Program

Curbside Yard Waste Collection, which had been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resumes effective Thursday, April 23rd.

2020 Schedule: April 2nd – November 27th

During the months when yard waste is NOT collected by Republic, it MUST be placed in plastic bags and put out on Bulk Collection day. Plastic bags are acceptable – brown lawn/leaf bags CANNOT be used because it does not get recycled as yard waste during these months. Yard waste collection will resume in April 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.
