Waynesboro to collect yard waste on alternate weeks

April 12, 2012

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Waynesboro Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger is reminding borough residents that yard waste — tree trimmings, hedge trimmings, brush and similar items — will not be collected on a weekly basis.

Yard waste will be collected every other week — on opposite weeks of recycling collection.

Tree trimmings, hedge trimmings, brush and similar items must be tied in bundles not exceeding four feet in length and 50 pounds in weight, or placed in a container not larger than 32 gallons, separate from other refuse.

If these items are in excess of the three container maximum permitted, the contractor may charge a per bundle or container fee for additional items.

Grass clippings will be collected on a weekly basis by the contractor if they are in containers not exceeding 32 gallons and placed in containers separate from other refuse. Grass clippings will be considered in the three container limit imposed.

The collector is not required to collect yard waste if it is mixed in containers with regular trash.
