Yard Waste Info

Yard waste (grass clippings, leaves, branches, twigs, tree limbs and prunings, flower cuttings, weeds, shrub and hedge clippings, sod, and garden waste - including, but not limited to vines, plants, fruit/vegetables and vegetable matter)

is not permitted to be mixed with any garbage, refuse, or recyclables for regular trash collection.

The Town of Smyrna has a program, which began on January 1, 2011, to provide town residents with a workable yard waste disposal option. This program allows for all yard waste (with the exception of branches, twigs, and tree limbs/prunings) to be bagged in plastic bags of sufficient strength to carry their contents without ripping or rupturing. Each individual bag of yard waste shall not exceed 40 pounds in weight.  Branches, twigs, and tree limbs/prunings shall be placed together in bundles, bags, or cardboard boxes, which shall not exceed 40 pounds in weight and 4 feet in length. Yard waste cannot be placed in rigid containers or containers used to dispose of items to be collected by the town trash/recycling contractor.  Yard waste that is not tied in bundles or placed in heavy duty plastic bags or cardboard boxes shall not be collected.

All yard waste must be deposited separate from other garbage and refuse at the appropriate street or alley line for collection.
