The Earth Angel Recycling program is the City’s curbside recycling service, which includes the pickup of leaves, grass, and small brush.
Materials must not be mixed with items such as household waste, rocks or dirt. If they are, the bag cannot be obtained. Small shrub trimmings no longer than three feet or three inches in diameter should be bundled.
The bagged or bundled materials must be placed on the curbside by 6 a.m. on the same day as recycling. Do not set out bags and/or bundles more than 12 hours prior to collection. This program is intended for residential customers, and should not be used to subsidize any lawn services. Residents are allowed 50 bags of leaf and mulch per collection day.
