Can my landscaper place my yard waste out for collection?
  • No. Professional tree trimmers, lawn maintenance companies, landscapers, etc. are required to arrange for disposal of cuttings, branches, grass and leaves. They are not considered City Environmental Services customers. They are also required to obtain all necessary local business tax receipts.
  • If your landscaper leaves the material, you the property owner will be held responsible for the cost of the removal if they do not take the material and may be subject to a civil citation.
