Yard waste includes things such as grass clippings, leaves, brush, shrubs, garden material, pruning and clippings from trees and live Christmas trees.
The Town of Middletown is no longer able to collect grass clippings or other yard waste on the streets. Residents should use their Yard Waste container, in which all yard waste (especially grass clippings) should be placed. This container is forest green with a bright yellow lid (pictured at left). If you NEED a yard waste can, call Public Works at 378-2211 and one will be delivered to your home.
The Town of Middletown Streets Department will continue to collect branches and leaves that don't fit into the yard waste container, on a regular, weekly collection schedule.
Please attempt to place as much yard waste in your yard waste container each week (especially since your trash bill pays Trash Tech for this service).
If you must place yard waste at the curb, please follow the Yard Waste Collection Schedule. Place your debris on the curb the night before your scheduled weekly pickup.
NOT ACCEPTED AS YARD WASTE: ROOT BALLS, DIRT, POTTING SOIL OR SOD.
Place yard waste loosely into the yard waste cart and include: small branches, household plants, grass clippings, and leaves.
NO BAGS of any kind. DO NOT USE PAPER OR PLASTIC BAGS FOR ANY YARD WASTE!
Extra quantities of yard waste can be put next to the cart in a marked container for pick-up.
