SPECIAL CITY SPRING LEAF AND YARDWASTE PICK UP PROGRAM ALMOST OVER
The last day to set out yardwaste is Monday morning, April 12, to take advantage of the City of Springfield's yardwaste pickup program.
Leaves should be placed in paper yard waste bags or cans and placed at the curb. The last day to set out yard waste for the special collection is Sunday evening. Do not remove the bagged leaves or cans from your curb once you place them there. No plastic bags will be accepted. Leaves left on boulevards will NOT be picked up.
Leaves should be placed in paper yardwaste bags--not grocery sacks or boxes. Cans of yard waste rather than paper bags are acceptable, but they cannot weigh more than 60 pounds and must be marked “yard waste” in letters large enough to be seen from the street by the drivers.
