Service Department crews will collect yard waste for Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff residents each Monday, from April 7 through November 24, 2014.
If a holiday falls on a Monday, yard waste will be collected on TUESDAY, for that week. Holiday closings are advertised in the local paper, the week prior to the closing. Yard waste must be appropriately bundled or placed in biodegradable paper bags, and shall not be set out earlier than one hour prior to sunset on Sunday or on Tuesday following a holiday. Bundles or bags shall be placed next to the alley or if no alley exists, behind the curb at the street.
Tree limbs and shrubbery must be cut and bundled with twine or string (no wire, plastic or nylon string). Bundles should be no larger than two feet in diameter, four feet long and weigh no more than 50 pounds.
Grass and plant materials must be placed in paper bags, not to exceed 30 gallon capacity and weigh no more than 50 pounds (no plastic or biodegradable plastics are permitted).
SOD, SOIL, or DIRT COVERED ROOTS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.
Residents may use a refuse container for yard waste, but must display a "Yard Waste" sticker (obtain at 1525 Goodale Boulevard), weigh no more than 50 pounds, and should not have limbs sticking out more than 12" above the top of the container.
