5. Branches must be bundled in short lengths, not exceeding six feet.

6. The City will only pick up a maximum of one cubic yard of refuse (approx. a ½ ton truck full) of those allowable items. Refuse in excess of this amount will be left behind.

7. All yard and garden waste to be picked up should be placed on your property line close to the area where your usual garbage pick-up is made.

8. The above described material left in your lane or at your property line will be regarded as designated for pick-up.
