Yard Waste Collection Begins - First Two Weeks Free

City of Aurora yard waste and unbundled brush collection begins Monday, April 5, and until Friday, April 16, the pickup is free meaning no waste stickers are required.

Yard waste must be in a 30 gallon Kraft paper yard waste bag not to exceed 60 pounds.  After April 16, a waste sticker, which is the same one used for garbage, must be attached to the bag.  Yard waste mixed with garbage or yard waste in a garbage can or plastic bag will not be collected.

Branches and limbs that are ½ inch to four inches in diameter and two to four feet in length can be placed at the curb without a waste sticker.  Brush that is less than ½ inch in diameter is considered yard waste and must be placed in a Kraft paper yard waste bag.  After April 16, a waste sticker must be attached to the yard waste bag for pickup.  Brush should be in neat, manageable piles with the cut side of the limbs facing the street.  Tangled and unmanageable piles will not be collected.  It is the responsibility of the contractor to remove and dispose of brush that results from contracted services.

Both yard waste and unbundled brush collection takes place on your regular garbage day and should be at the curb by 6:00 AM.  Yard waste collection continues until December 3; unbundled brush collection until November 5.
