Yard Waste Program

Yard Waste Program

Yard waste includes leaves, garden debris, and small twigs.  No grass clippings will be collected. Residents are encouraged to use mulching mowers or compost their own grass clippings.

1. Yard waste materials must be placed in either cans clearly marked with the words "Yard Waste" in two locations; or in 30-gallon paper yard waste bags which are available at local hardware stores.  Plastic bags will not be accepted.

2. The weight limit of each container must not exceed 50 pounds or the materials will not be collected.

3. Yard waste mixed with trash will be rejected.

4. Yard waste must be placed at the edge of the street, curb or alley (the same location as garbage pick-up)  abutting your property but must not extend onto the pavement, the same day as garbage collection.

(To determine your collection week check the City of Glendale website here)

5.  Yard waste shall not be placed on cul-de-sac islands, city-owned lots, school property, boulevards or at the end of "dead end" or "no outlet" alleys.

Disposal of Large, Bulky or Non-Household Waste

Disposal of Large, Bulky, or Non-Household Waste

Disposal of large furniture, mattresses, etc., is done by special collection on Mondays only.  Residents must call Advanced Disposal Services at (262) 679-0860 to schedule a special pick-up for all large, bulky, or non-household waste.  

Special pick-ups must be scheduled at least two days in advance of the scheduled Monday collection.  Items may be placed at the curb on the night prior to the Monday collection only.

Items must be neatly piled or placed in containers to facilitate collection.  All collections are done by hand, so your consideration for the collection workers is appreciated.
