Yard Waste and Leaf Collection

Yard Waste Collection

The City of Brighton’s curbside yard waste collection program will begin the week of April 1 and will continue through November 27, 2024.

During the spring and summer months, yard waste will be picked up on regularly scheduled trash pickup days every other week by our refuse contractor, Waste Management.

Brush must be cut in 4-foot lengths or less and bundled. Limbs cannot be greater than 4 inches in diameter. All grass and leaves must be placed in compostable paper bags or approved and labeled containers. Bundles, bags or containers must be no greater than 30 pounds in weight. There is a 10-bag or bundle limit per pickup during the spring and summer.

Wonder Where Your Yard Waste Goes?

The yard waste collected from the City of Brighton is brought to a local composting facility. Before you place waste in the brown bags for pickup, please be aware of what materials are appropriate.

Yard waste INCLUDES leaves, twigs and branches, grass clippings and other organic materials such as flowers, weeds and garden plants.

Yard waste DOES NOT INCLUDE sod, pet waste, branches over 6 inches in diameter, stumps, logs, wood, dirt, rocks, trash.

During the spring and summer, City staff does not perform curbside leaf vacuuming; this service is only done in the fall.
