Yard Waste Update

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.

Residents are reminded that yard waste is collected on the same day as your trash and recycling, but 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 in cans or plastic bags, will not be collected by the town’s trash and recycling company.

Residents will also be able to drop off yard waste at the Town’s Pascale Highway Facility located at 17 Old Mendon Road.  Yard waste will be accepted Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Yard waste cannot be delivered at this facility on those Mondays or other days that are scheduled for town holidays.
