SW-INCIDENT: Missed Yard Waste Pick-Up Request

If you believe your service may have been missed on the scheduled day of collection, you can complete a missed yard waste pick-up request.

Please note that Solid Waste crews run routes until 6:00 PM. If you are contacting the City prior to 6:00 PM, please wait until the following day to verify that the service was not provided. 

*Please make note of delayed schedules if inquiring during inclement weather or after a holiday. 

What is the cost for for a missed yard waste request?

If the service was missed on the collection day, through no fault of the customer, there is no fee.  

If the customer does not receive the regularly scheduled weekly service through no fault of the City, the customer shall be charged a return trip fee of $10.00.

When are missed yard waste requests complete?

The missed trash will be picked within 48 business hours from the initial call. 

If more than two business days have passed since the date of the scheduled pick-up day, the trash will not be collected until the next scheduled pick-up day. 

Calls made after 12:00pm noon will be picked the following day.
