Yes, starting January 1, 2019, bulk and yard waste will be collected together once per week on your first garbage collection day. If your garbage collection is on Monday and Thursday, your bulk and yard waste will be collected on Mondays.
This applies only to small size yard waste (grass clippings, leaves, tree/plant trimmings, etc.). These items can be placed either in a clear bag or directly into your personal garbage can. This allows Waste Management to ensure that only yard waste is being collected.

No. Larger size yard waste items like tree branches and palm fronds no longer need to be bundled. Simply place them in a neat pile within three (3) feet of the curbline on your yard waste collection day. Please keep in mind that no items can be longer than six (6) feet in length and no larger than eight (8) inches in diameter.
