Yard Waste

The weekly curbside collection of yard waste within the Town of Cumberland will end on Friday, June 10, 2022.  However, yard waste collection will continue on a bi-weekly basis during the summer season beginning on Monday, June 20, 2022.  The townwide collection of yard waste every two weeks will continue until September 23, 2022.  The weekly collection of yard waste will again resume on October 3, 2022.  An updated fall collection schedule will be published at a later date.

Yard waste is defined as grass clippings, leaves, vegetation, and small branches. No trash, stones, or sand can be mixed in with your yard waste. Bags found with these unacceptable materials or other debris and refuse will not be collected.

Message to the Town of Cumberland

One of the greatest things about Cumberland isn’t a thing at all, it is the people. I believe in Cumberland, and I believe in Cumberland’s future. By capturing the spirit and energy of this town and by working together, we can create a community that provides opportunities for all. Together we can develop a state of the art senior center, revitalize Broad Street, and bring Diamond Hill Park to life for a new generation. This is all achievable. This is who we are.

Be well.

Thank you,

Mayor Jeff Mutter
