Leaf Collection and Yard Waste



Leaf vacuuming will begin the week of October 18, 2021 and continues through December 10, 2021.  

Residents are asked to rake leaves to the curb by Tuesday or Wednesday morning, for pickup by Prairieland Disposal on your trash / recycling collection day (Tuesday or Wednesday).  

Leaves must be raked to within five feet of the curb and should not be placed in the gutter or street.


Yard waste is collected weekly beginning April 1 through the second week of December on the same day that refuse and recycling are collected.

  • Yard waste must be placed in biodegradable bags (brown paper) or cans (maximum 50 pounds) that are clearly marked as landscape waste (labeled as Yard Waste or a large X).
  • Stickers are not required.
  • Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected. 
  • Branches should be tightly tied with biodegradable string or twine, in a bundle not exceeding four feet in length or 50 pounds in weight.

Yard waste should be placed at the curb no sooner than 7:00 pm the day before the scheduled pick up day and no later than 7:00 am on the actual pick up day.  As an option for residents, Prairieland Disposal will provide a container for the collection of yard waste for $5 per month during the collection period.
