Yard Trimmings

Yard Trimmings in Elmwood Park are collected each Monday.

Yard Trimmings include the pickup of grass clippings, loose and/or bagged leaves, and branches less than 6 feet in length.

The City composts its Yard Trimmings to reduce landfill waste. Once the compost is broken down, it is a valuable gardening material, and is available to citizens at 127 Humane Lane, just opposite from the Animal Shelter.
