Yard Waste Collection is for Residents of Norwalk who receive City garbage collection.
Residents MUST have their Yard Waste curbside by 6:00 AM on the MONDAY of their scheduled week of collection, as the truck will pass by only once during that week. Once the truck passes it will NOT return until the second scheduled collection.
The 2017 Fall Yard Waste collection Schedule is as follows:
November 6-10: Residents with Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday garbage collection
November 13-17: Residents with Thursday and Friday garbage collection
Nov 27-Dec 1: Residents with Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday garbage collection
December 4-8: Residents with Thursday and Friday garbage collection
For example, if your normal garbage collection day is on a Thursday, your Yard Waste will be picked up on the weeks of November 13th and December 4th. Your Yard Waste will be picked up any time during those weeks, not on a particular day.
GENERAL INFORMATION & GUIDELINES
Leaves, brush and grass clippings are on Connecticut’s list of mandatory recycling items.
DO NOT MIX THESE ITEMS WITH GARBAGE. The City of Norwalk encourages you to compost at home and mulch your grass clippings into your lawn.
Yard waste collection guidelines are as follows:
Yard Waste will be collected ONLY in brown paper leaf bags, garbage cans with no lids, or open-top cardboard boxes.
Yard Waste in plastic bags, loose piles of brush and leaves, rocks, soil, and sand
WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.
Brush must be less than 4-feet in length and 6-inches or less in diameter. It MUST be tied up in bundles.
There is a 25-pound weight limit for bags of Yard Waste and 50-pound weight limit for cans or bundles of brush. Please DO NOT overload bags or cans.
Logs and Stumps WILL NOT BE COLLECTED. Logs and Stumps can be brought to the Yard Waste Site located at 15 South Smith Street. Please remember to bring the proper Resident Pass, and under some circumstances, you may have to pay to dump.
