York City curbside customers may place yard waste at their designated pick-up point for collection on their normal recycling day beginning this week.

All yard waste must meet the following requirements:

* Brush: Bundled branches, each branch must be less than 4 inches in diameter (maximum bundle size: 3 feet by 3 feet and 40 pounds); or use authorized yellow yard waste cans (maximum: 40 pounds).

* Leaves/prunings/garden residue (no grass clippings): Use biodegradable kraft paper bags (maximum: 32 gallons; 40 pounds); or use authorized yellow yard waste cans (maximum: 40 pounds).

Customers are reminded that plastic bags should not be used and will not be collected for yard waste collections. Do not line yard waste cans with bags. Grass clippings should be placed in with regular trash and count toward the normal trash bag limit.

The City's Yard Waste Facility at Memorial Stadium will open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 6, weather permitting. Customers must provide proof of customer status or residency, such as a valid license or a recent sewer bill.
