Residents may place small yard waste that will fit inside a bag, such as leaves, shrubbery, small branches, weeds and grass, into clear yard bags.
- These items will only be removed on your scheduled bulk removal dates and only when placed in clear bags. Black trash bags are not permitted and will not be picked up.
- Black bags that are left out on the swale will be issued a notice by Code Enforcement.
- On either of their two garbage days, residents may put out a clear yard bag with yard debris as long as they tie a Plantation blue garbage bag onto each clear bag. Otherwise, residents may choose have their clear bags picked up on their regularly scheduled bulk pick-up day.
- Palm fronds and large branches must be tied into bundles (not to exceed six (6) feet or 40 pounds), and placed alongside blue bags on garbage days.
- For a nominal fee, yard waste may be brought to the City’s Horticultural Recycling Center, located at 750 NW 91st Avenue, off Cleary Boulevard. For a list of acceptable yard waste and applicable fees, please visit the Horticultural Recycling Center
Homeowners who leave black bags or unacceptable items on swales after bulk pick up will be issued a citation by Code Enforcement.
