Curbside yard waste collection begins Monday

Curbside yard waste collection begins Monday

CUMBERLAND – The Town of Cumberland will begin to collect yard waste curbside on Monday, April 16. The Kent Street Highway garage will no longer be accepting yard waste at that facility.

Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings and small branches. No trash, stones, or sand can be mixed in. It will be collected on the same day as trash and recycling, but with a separate collection truck.

Yard waste is accepted only if placed in brown paper biodegradable lawn bags. Small bundles of branches, 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 trash cans or plastic bags will not be collected.

This curbside pickup will continue until Friday, June 22. Updates about future yard waste pickup schedules during the summer and fall will be provided at a later date.

More information is available on the town website at www.cumberlandri.org or by contacting the Public Works Department at 401-728-2400, ext. 125 or ext. 155.
