City Wide Brush and Yard Waste Pick- Up

Yard waste pick-up is provided for city residents maintaining their yards. This service is only provided once in the spring and once in the fall and is for brush and yard waste only.


2024 Spring Brush and Yard Waste Pick-Up  

April 15 - April 26, 2024

City residents must set out brush and leaf bags by 7:00 a.m. Monday, April 15th to be guaranteed pick-up. Pick-up will occur through April 26th. Residents are requested to set out items at curbside earlier than the dates listed as crews may collect yard waste before April 26th. Residents missing this deadline will be required to haul the yard waste and brush to Oneida County Landfill at their expense.

Yard waste pick-up will be provided for city residents maintaining their yards. The service is not intended for clean-up for residential tree removal contractors, cleaning of vacant lots for developments, businesses, or tax-exempt properties.

As in previous years, clean-up services will observe the following rules and conditions:

• Clear Plastic or paper bags are required. The city will not pick up dark colored or non-see through bags.

• Brush must be free of rope, wire, lumber, or other debris and neatly piled with cut end of limbs facing the street, 6 inch or less diameter. Bags containing a mixture of yard waste and household rubbish, or garbage will not be picked up.

• Residents are not allowed to rake leaves or yard waste laying loose in curb line or street. Violators may be billed for clean-up and/or issued a citation.

• Do not stack brush on leaf bags as each item is picked up separately.

It is unlawful for anyone bringing items from outside the city and placing at curbside, violators may be issued a citation.
