Yard waste collection will take place November 12 to November 23. 

The City of Marlborough’s Department of Public Works is pleased to announce that the curbside collection of yard waste is again set for two weeks this fall. Those weeks are Monday, November 12th, through Friday November 16th, and again from Monday, November 19th, through Friday, November 23rd. The program will only occur during these two weeks. Please plan accordingly.

Residents currently being served by the city’s trash collection program (1-3 family homes and condominiums) are eligible for yard waste services. No grass clippings are allowed. All other small brush, trimmings, leaves, etc. should be placed in biodegradable paper bags or old trash barrels for this collection.  Do not use your wheeled carts! Bags and barrels must be at the curbside by 7:00 AM.

Yard waste for the purposes of this collection is defined as leaves, small brush (branches 1-inch maximum diameter) and shrub clippings. The maximum collection weight allowed for both the biodegradable paper bags and trash barrels is 50 lbs. Grass clippings are not permitted and will not be collected if placed curbside.

Yard waste will not be collected in plastic bags.

The fall yard waste collection will occur for two weeks. Those weeks are Monday, November 12th, through Friday November 16th, and again from Monday, November 19th, through Friday, November 23rd.
