Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, small branches and yard and garden debris. Yard waste must be bagged in clear, transparent, or biodegradable bags only. The City offers Bio-Bags in the fall at the Finance Department free of charge while supplies last. Yard waste will not be collected if not properly bagged or placed in non-transparent or black bags.
Please place your bagged yard waste on the curb no earlier than Saturday, October 24 (for collection during October 26 – 30) and Saturday, November 7 (for collection beginning on November 9). Residents may also use the compost site to dispose of leaf and yard waste prior to the above scheduled dates. The compost site is open Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. and Wednesday from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. More information will be published when a closing date for the compost site has been determined.
For those who miss the deadline of November 20, there will be two, six-yard dumpsters at the Department of Public Works (150 E. Starin Rd.) between November 23 and December 4. This will be an additional opportunity to dispose of yard waste. City of Whitewater residents only will have access during regular business hours (7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday. We ask that you please empty your bags/containers into the dumpsters and take them with you when you leave.
