Yard Waste Collection

Spring 2022

Curbside Collection - Bags or Bundle

Yard waste collection for the spring will begin on May 2nd and end on May 27th, 2022.  All waste must be bagged or bundled.  Bags must be kept as dry as possible to avoid having the bottom fall out during pick-up.

Bags - Must use paper bags only, no plastic bags allowed.  30 gallon paper bags can be purchased at your local home center, hardware or department store.

Bundles - Must be tied securely with string or twine (DO NOT tie with wire) and cannot exceed 24 inches in length with a maximum material diameter of 1 ½ inches. 

Any bag or bundle placed curbside is subject to a maximum weight limit of 30 pounds.  A maximum of 25 bags or bundles will be picked up at one time. 

Please note that the yard waste collection is performed by the DPW.  We try to schedule the pick-up to coincide with your trash collection.  In the event that your yard waste is not picked up the same day as your trash collection, simply leave it out and DPW will pick it up within a few days.

Drop Off at T.A.R.F. (Transfer and Recycling Facility)

Yard waste can be dropped off at the T.A.R.F. located behind the American Legion, 351 Fall River Avenue.  The facility is open 8:00AM - 3:00PM (closed for lunch 12:00PM - 12:30PM) Monday - Friday (excluding holidays), as well as every Saturday between April and November from 8:00AM - 12:00PM.  Bags must be emptied on site to ensure contents are appropriate.

Oversized branches, logs, stumps, household garbage, metal of any kind, rocks, soil, ashes or animal waste as well as any items used in gardening or planting such as pots, flats, fertilizer and seed bags, etc.    Any of these items will likely cause damage to machinery and contaminate the compost produced.

Compost is available to all residents, free of charge and can be picked up at the T.A.R.F. during the hours indicated above.
