All extra scheduled pickups must fall within the following guidelines: leaves must be bagged in biodegradable leaf bags; sticks and branches must be less than 4 feet in length and 4 inches in diameter; and waste must be in manageable bundles, tied securely with twine. No City yard waste containers or personal containers will be serviced. No plastic of any kind will be accepted.
