Fall is here! A reminder that yard waste pickup continues with your weekly trash pickup from Republic Services.
Fall is here! A reminder that yard waste pickup continues with your weekly trash pickup from Republic Services. The Town of Matthews defines yard waste as brush, tree and shrub trimmings, leaves and grass trimmings, and other materials accumulated as the result of the care of lawns, shrubbery, vines and trees. Please review the key guidelines for yard waste pickup below.
Four tips to keep in mind:
1. Schedule - Yard waste is picked up once a week on your scheduled trash pickup day. Yard
waste must be placed at the curb.
2. Limitations - Leaves and grass clippings must be bagged in clear bags, or other bags left open so the driver can see the contents. Each residence is limited to a maximum of 20 bags per week,
and each bag must weigh less than 50 pounds.
3. Branches - All branches and limbs must be cut and stacked in small piles. Branches must be cut in lengths of four feet or less and can be no larger than five inches in diameter.
4. Containment - Do not leave bagged yard waste, tree limbs, or branches blocking the sidewalk
or in the street.
