YARD WASTE COL­LEC­TION SCHED­ULE

Yard waste col­lec­tion is for res­i­dents of Nor­walk who re­ceive city garbage col­lec­tion.

Res­i­dents must have their yard waste curb­side by 6 a.m. the Mon­day of their sched­uled week of col­lec­tion, as the truck will pass by only once that week. Once the truck passes it will not re­turn un­til the sec­ond sched­uled col­lec­tion.

The 2018 col­lec­tion sched­ule:

Week of Nov. 5: Those with Mon­day, Tues­day, Wed­nes­day garbage col­lec­tion

Week of Nov. 12: Those with Thurs­day and Fri­day garbage col­lec­tion

Week of Nov. 26: Those with Mon­day, Tues­day, Wed­nes­day garbage col­lec­tion

Week of Dec. 3: Those with Thurs­day and Fri­day garbage col­lec­tion

Leaves, brush and grass clip­pings are on Con­necti­cut’s list of manda­tory re­cy­cling items.

The City of Nor­walk en­cour­ages you to com­post at home and mulch your grass clip­pings into your lawn. Yard waste col­lec­tion guide­lines are as fol­lows:

Yard Waste will be col­lected only in brown pa­per leaf bags, garbage cans with no lids or open-top card­board boxes.

Yard Waste in plas­tic bags, loose piles of brush and leaves, rocks, soil and sand will not be col­lected.

Brush must be less than 4 feet in length and 6 inches or less in di­am­e­ter. It must be tied in bun­dles.

There is a 25-pound weight limit for bags of yard waste and a 50-pound weight limit for cans or bun­dles of brush. Do not over­load bags or cans.

Logs and Stumps will not be col­lected. They can be brought to the Yard Waste Site at 15 South Smith St. Re­mem­ber to bring the proper Res­i­dent Pass, and un­der some cir­cum­stances, you may have to pay to dump.

If you be­lieve you are missed for a yard waste col­lec­tion, call Cus­tomer Ser­vice at 203-854-3200 on Mon­day of the fol­low­ing week.
