Beginning April 1st, we will start taking the waste collected in the brown yard waste carts to the landfill. As was the case last year, area mulch contractors no longer accept grass. So, until we find an alternative method for grass disposal, the only available option is to take it to the landfill. To be clear, you can still use your yard waste carts for grass but that waste stream will be taken to the landfill rather than a mulch contractor.
During “loose leaf season”, November 1st through March 31st, with grass no longer a problem, we will resume the practice of taking the brown yard waste carts (typically leaves and limbs) to the mulch sites again. We ask that residents continue to use the yard waste carts for disposal of mulchable waste only.
November 1st thru March 31st is “Loose Leaf Season” in Bartlett. Place your leaves in a dome shaped pile within 10’ of the road way so our collection equipment can reach it. Please remember that debris should never be placed on the road way! Loose leaf collection times will not likely coincide with weekly garbage collection. If you require timely leaf collections, please place them in your yard waste cart or beside your cart in a bag. Please avoid placing leaves next to your mail box, fire hydrants, light poles, drainage structures and in ditches.
What We Do
Our Solid Waste Division is one of the most complete and efficient operations in the State. We recycle roughly 40% of the solid waste generated by our residents through a combination of our yard waste collections and drop-off recycling centers.
