Curbside collection of continerized 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 their one free appointment based clean up, or call 311 to request a free dump coupon.
Christmas Tree Recycling
Holiday tree recycling is a great way to help the environment and send less to the landfill. This year, residential yard waste customers can place trees on the curb during Leaf Season. Last day that trees can go out for collection is January 31, 2014. More information on tree recycling is available here.
Citywide collection of yard waste piles will occur only in November, December and January. Please fill your yard waste container first before placing extra material out in a pile in front of your residence. More information is available on our Leaf Season page.
