Default Yard Clippings- How to get rid of them?

I have done some raking of my yard and also have some small branch clippings that I need to get rid of. Will the garbage people pick up? If not, how do I dispose of them?

Thanks,

Craig

Yard waste is picked up every Wednesday as long as you put them in yard waste bags.

If the branches are too large for the bags (not black plastic but the large paper ones you can purchase at the grocery store, any hardware store or Sam's), you can tie them into bundles.

The yard clipping people come really early in hillsborough -- like 8:00 early.

Sanitation Information


Yard waste should be bundled, tied and placed at the end of your driveway. Tree limbs and branches may not exceed four (4) feet in length. Lawn clippings and similar yard waste should be placed in biodegradable bags.

If I don't have enough to fill a large yard waste bag I've used a paper grocery bag as well.
