Please be aware that paper yard waste bags that have been left out all winter will not be picked up and will need to be re-bagged by the resident. Barrels that contain yard waste will be picked up; however, they cannot have any accumulated water in the barrels.
The Solid Waste Division reminds residents to place yard waste curbside on their recycling day. Paper leaf bags should be thirty (30) gallon capacity; Bags and containers should not weigh more than 40 lbs. The City of Springfield cannot collect yard waste in plastic bags. Hedge clippings, garden waste, as well as twigs and brush should not be longer than two (2) feet in length and one-half (1/2) inch in diameter and should be loosely bundled together.
