Use biodegradable paper lawn bags, available at local grocery and home improvement stores. No plastic bags will be collected.
Grass clippings, leaves, plant materials and small cuttings must be bagged.
Tree and brush trimmings must be tied into 4-foot bundles, weighing no more than 40 lbs. Secure with biodegradable string, twine or rope.
