Yard debris (no grass, sod, soil or bags) may be placed between the sidewalk and curb for automatic collection by the city. Pieces should be no longer than 6 feet in length and in a manageable pile that is away from trees, poles, fire hydrants and other obstructions. City laws prohibit the placement of any debris in the streets or boulevards, except leaves during the fall leaf collection season. The December yard debris collection is bi-weekly. The monthly collection schedule begins again in January.
