Yard Waste Removal Guidelines
 
  • Yard Waste is picked up weekly on Wednesday.

  • Yard waste must be placed curbside not more than 24 hours prior to 6AM on pickup day in accordance with Article 771 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Charles Town. Brush and limbs must be of manageable length and weight.
  • Leaves and grass clippings must be placed in compostable paper yard waste bags with stickers. The waste removal stickers can be purchased at City Hall for $1 per sticker. Each bag must have a sticker.
  • The City only vacuums bulk leaves from October (depending on leaf-drop) until January 15 and as part of the Fall Cleanup program.
  • The City does not accept dirt, building material or plastic bags. Tree removal, site cleanup, limbs and brush from clearing lots or major pruning must be done by private contractors. Quantities larger than a pickup load may be charged an additional fee in accordance with Article 771 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Charles Town.
