Yard Waste Update

The Cumberland Public Works Department is pleased to announce the start of the weekly curbside collection of yard waste beginning on Monday, April 5, 2021.  The collection of yard waste during the spring will continue until Friday, June 11, 2021.  Yard waste collection during the summer months will resume on a bi-weekly basis starting on June 21, 2021.

Residents are reminded that yard waste is collected on the same day as your trash and recycling but will be performed with a separate collection truck. Yard waste is only accepted if placed in brown paper biodegradable lawn bags.  Small bundles of branches, which are no larger than 2 inches in diameter and limited to 3 feet in length, may also be placed curbside for pick-up.  Yard waste that is placed in trash cans or plastic bags will not be collected by the town’s trash and recycling company.

Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, hedges or shrub clippings, and small branches.  No trash, stones, or sand can be mixed in.
