In 2007, Carroll County regulations changed to require that yard waste
be placed in heavy brown paper bags. CCWS does not provide these bags;
they are available for purchase at local retailers.
Because yard waste cannot be taken with trash to the Carroll County landfill,
we offer a separate yard waste collection service for our customers.
The collected yard waste is then mulched and recycled.
•Leaves and grass must be placed in PAPER bags weighing no more than 40 lbs. •Sticks, twigs, branches, and vines must be bundled and tied with string or bagged. •Branches and limbs cannot be larger than 3 inches in diameter and 4.5 feet long.
The following items CANNOT be collected with yard waste
•Soil or mulch •Lumber or wood chips •Animal Waste •Plastic or other non-biodegradable packaging
Please place your yard waste out on Thursday night.
We begin collection very early on Friday morning.
