Bagged Yard Work Collection Begins
- Date: 05/07/2018
The City will collect bagged yard waste and bundled brush on the same day as your regular garbage pickup the week of May 7 - 11. Grass, leaves, and garden debris will be collected in paper biodegradable bags (preferred) or reusable containers up to 35 gallons in size. Bags or containers must each weigh less than 50 pounds. Brush should be bundled no larger than four feet in length, 12 inches in diameter, and no heavier than 50 pounds. Size limits are necessary so bundles can fit into collection trucks.
Please place the bags and/or bundles at the curb, a few feet from your trash cart, by 7 a.m. on the morning of your scheduled collection day.
Other Yard Waste Disposal Options:
- Use as mulch or leave grass clippings on lawn.
- Home compost or deposit at the City compost site (Janesville residents only).
- Deliver stumps, brush, branches, roots, and shrubs to demolition landfill for a fee of $5.50/cubic yard (Janesville residents) or $7.00/cubic yard (non-residents).
Please note that burning yard waste is illegal within the Janesville city limits. For additional information, please contact City Services at (608) 755-3110 or visit our website.
