The City of Hagerstown will begin collecting yard waste April 4.
Residents should set leaves, grass clippings, branches and small sticks at the curbside after 4 p.m. Tuesday for Wednesday morning collection.
Branches and sticks must be bundled in lengths of three feet or shorter, and no larger than 3 inches in diameter. Items should be placed in reusable containers or nonplastic leaf bags.
The program will last until Dec. 5.
