Specific guidelines of the program are listed below:

  • Branch bundles should be easy to lift by one person.
  • Individual branches must not exceed three inches (3") in diameter.
  • Each bundle should not exceed one foot in diameter and less than 4 feet in length.
  • Pre-paid stickers are not required to be placed on each bundle.
  • Branch bundles properly sized and securely tied with biodegradable natural twine should be placed at the curb in front of residence for collection.

Note: The Bundled Branch Collection Program is separate and does not replace the Homewood Disposal Yard Waste Program (grass clippings and leaves). Residents are required to place pre-paid yard waste stickers on each 33-gallon biodegradable yard waste bag.

Trees must be devoid of any ornaments, tinsel, garland or plastic/fabric bag wrap. Other holiday decorations, such as wreaths and garland may be bagged with garbage and set out as refuse.
