What to Do with Yard Debris

It seems that many citizens are disposing of yard waste recently, so we wanted to remind you of the right way to dispose of debris such as tree limbs and leaves.

This is CORRECT. Leaves must be bagged and placed up on the curb.

  • Do not sweep or blow grass clippings, leaves, and limbs into storm drains as it could lead to flooding in your street.
  • If you hire a lawn service company, they should not be blowing leaves and grass into the street or into storm drains.
  • If you hire someone to cut trees, branches or limbs, then they are responsible for hauling off the debris.
  • Place your yard waste up on the curb by the morning of the second collection day of the week for Waste Management. Be sure that you do not place it in the street.
  • Yard debris must be no longer than 5 feet and no bigger than 8 inches in diameter. It also should not weigh more than 60 pounds.
  • Limbs should be stacked in armful-size bundles along the curb.
  • Leaves must be bagged.

    These limb piles are small and lined up along the curb. The limbs are also cut to no longer than 5 feet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you have a large amount of yard debris: 

  • It may take more than one collection for Waste Management to remove it completely.
  • If it’s too large to cut or weighs more than 60 pounds, you may place your yard debris at the curb for the City of Ridgeland knuckle-boom truck that is scheduled one Monday per month per area. View the collection map to determine your large debris collection day. 

If you have any questions, call the Public Works Department at 601-853-2027.
