Yard waste

Yard Waste

Curbside collection of containerized yard waste occurs weekly. All residential properties in the City of Sacramento must use containers for yard waste disposal. Yard waste must not be placed in the street - except during leaf season. Customers who need additional yard waste service can order an additional container, use the  free Household Junk Pickup program, or call 311 to request a free dump coupon.

Leaf Season
