Yard Waste Update

Cumberland’s summer curbside collection of yard waste began on a bi-weekly basis on Monday, June 19 and will continue every other week until September 29. The weekly collection will begin again during the week of October 9.  An updated fall collection schedule will be published at a later date.   

Brown bag with leaves, grass, and twigs in it.

Yard waste is defined as grass clippings, leaves, vegetation, and small branches. No trash, stones, or sand can be mixed in with your yard waste. Bags found with these unacceptable materials or other debris and refuse will not be collected.

Residents are reminded that yard waste is collected on the same day as your trash and recycling, but with a separate collection truck. Yard waste is only accepted if placed in brown paper biodegradable lawn bags.  Small bundles of branches, which are no larger than 2 inches in diameter and limited to 3 feet in length, may also be placed curbside for pick-up.  Yard waste in cans or plastic bags will not be collected by the town’s trash and recycling company.

Residents can drop-off yard waste at the Town’s Pascale Highway Facility located at 17 Old Mendon Road.  Yard waste will be accepted Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Yard waste cannot be delivered at this facility on those Mondays or other days that are scheduled town holidays
