Processing facilities are beginning to phase out the use of plastic bags for yard waste collection. Many residents have already made the change from plastic bags to compostable paper bags or rigid plastic containers. Effective January 1st, 2021, ADS will no longer collect yard debris in plastic bags.
**Yard debris collection reminder**: Residents must use compostable paper bags for grass clippings and leaves. Personal cans may be used; however, they need to be marked “yard debris”. Tree limbs and brush must be no longer than 4 feet in length and 3 inches thick in diameter. These items must be tied with rope or twine in arm length bundles. We will collect a maximum of 10 bags of grass clippings and/or leaves, and 10 bundles of brush per pick up. There will be an extra charge if you would like to schedule additional removal of these items. Please call in advance for pricing and to schedule.
Items that are bagged and bundled are not to exceed 50 lbs. Concrete, rocks, mulch, sod, and dirt are not accepted.
To purchase compostable bags, we recommend checking online, at the grocery store or warehouse stores such as Home Depot, Lowes or garden centers.
