The Curbside Leaf Collection has been changed.Burlington Solid Waste crews will continue to collect leaves, lawn and garden residue and twigs no larger than 1" in diameter for 7 weeks in the fall and 3 weeks in the spring. MATERIAL MUST BE IN PAPER YARD WASTE BAGS. WE WILL NO LONGER COLLECT FROM 33 GALLON CANS OR THE CITY SUPPLIED CARTS. Collection is at the curb even if your garbage is picked up in the alley. Collection is the day after trash collection. Bags with tape or staples or that weight more than 40 pounds will be left uncollected. No garbage or trash may be mixed in with yardwaste.
Approved paper yardwaste bags are available at various retail outlets. It is illegal to rake, blow or deposit leaves or other yardwaste onto the street, sidewalk or alley.
Property owners may otherwise contract with private haulers for yardwaste collection, or self-haul yardwaste to the landfill for free disposal.
