Yard Waste Disposal Information

Yard Waste Program brochure

Wood Waiver

Vegetation is yard waste resulting from normal reoccuring yard and landscape maintenance such as trimming from hedges and bushes, pine needles and small limbs from trees and leaves. It is collected on the same day as trash is collected(see Collection Schedule) between May 1 and November 30.

Please note: Sidney is not reponsible for the removal of vegetation disposed of in the swale, right-of-way, or edge of pavement by a private landscaping company.

All yard waste that can be containerized in bio-degradeable bags must be containerized. Small loose items such as leaves, pine needles, hedge trimmings, and weeds must also be in a bio-degradeable bag to be collected.

Fruit is not considered vegetation and should not be disposed of with your vegetation. These items should be disposed of with your household garbage or composted.

Sod, dirt, and landscaping rocks are not considered vegetation and will not be picked up.

Vegetation will not be collected if:

  • it is mixed with other garbage
  • placed under a utility pole/ power line
  • placed on vacant lot
  • exceeds two (2) inches in diameter
  • exceeds 60 pounds in weight
  • exceeds four (4) feet in length

    Yard waste does not include cut trees or tree limbs exceeding two (2) inches in diameter, stumps, root balls, vegetation from lot clearing or vegetation requiring wheeled or tracked machinery for removal. Residents will have to make their own arrangements for removal of larger waste materials.
