Yard waste season runs first Friday in April through last Friday in November

Hainesville residents will receive weekly collection of an unlimited amount of properly prepared landscape waste on the same day as refuse and recycling collection.  Landscape waste should be placed by each resident at the street side in front of the property by 6:30 a.m. on Friday.

Landscape waste should be placed in biodegradable “Kraft” type bags not to exceed 33 gallons in size or 50 pounds in weight.  Metal or plastic cans not exceeding 33 gallons in size or 50 pounds in weight will also be collected.

If the landscape waste cannot reasonably be placed in bags or cans, it must be securely tied with biodegradable string or twine in bundles not to exceed 4 feet in length, 24 inches in diameter, and 50 pounds in weight.

Christmas trees for all residential customers will be collected each year at no additional charge on your collection day between January 2nd and the last regular collection date in January.
