Yard waste collection begins Monday, March 4th, 2019 – Yard waste includes grass clippings, weeds, and other non-woody plant materials. During the growing season, the City collects yard waste on Mondays; collection must be scheduled in advance by calling (440) 775-7218.   Yard waste must be placed in paper “lawn and leaf” bags or plastic yard waste bags that are clearly marked “biodegradable” by the manufacturer. Do not use grocery store bags or other bags not designed for this purpose. Paper ‘lawn and leaf’ bags and biodegradable plastic bags can be incorporated directly into the compost. This increases efficiency and helps the City produce higher quality compost. Maximum weight is 30 lbs. per bag. Residents must purchase yard waste tags for $1.00 each from the City Finance/Utility Office located at 69 South Main Street.
