Yard Waste/Leaf Pickup

Branches: Wood or branches must be put into bundles that do not weigh more than 35 lbs. each and have been tied with rope or twine. They must be no longer than 4' in length or 4" in diameter.


Grass Clippings: We encourage residents to use a mulching mower when possible. Keeping the heavy bags of grass out of the regular trash will save on the tonnage cost.

Leaf Pick-Up:  Leaf pick up will start throughout the City starting November 7 th and will continue through December weather permitting. The crews will start in the South end of the City heading North. Signs will be placed one week in advance.


Tree Trimming:

The Service Department will trim street trees, per SHCO. 707.05, limbs obstructing so that the branches of such trees projecting over any public sidewalk, private driveway or into any public street beyond the curb line shall not conflict with the public welfare. Property owner’s may, at their expense, have tree limbs trimmed which they find objectionable provided that such work is performed according to the requirements in the City Ordinance. The limbs shall be cleared where the lowest branches are not less than nine feet above a public sidewalk and not less than 13 feet above the ground over a public road.
