Yard Waste Program
Yard waste collection is available twice weekly. If prepared correctly, materials placed curbside on your first service day of the week will be collected by a separate CWD truck and taken to a compost facility. All items collected on your second service day will go to the landfill.
Loose brush in any amount will not be collected. Brush must be tied in bundles of 4 feet or shorter, weighing no more than 50 lbs. Leaves and lawn trimmings must be bagged. Households are limited to 20 bags/bundles per collection day. To keep spillage to a minimum, please ensure the weight of the contents is suitable for the bag/carton it is placed in.
Use biodegradable bags and/or biodegradable cotton/jute rope, twine, or string on your first service day to send materials to the compost facility. Do not bundle tree and brush trimmings with nylon rope, plastic, metal, garden hoses, or other non-compostable materials.
Use plastic bags to send materials to the landfill.

Make your recycling cart look like new! Our state-of-the-art pressure washing process will have your recycling cart clean and germ-free inside and out. Our system is environmentally friendly and kills more than 99.9% of germs, fungi and viruses.
STEP ONE: Call CWD so that you can be added to the CartWash schedule.
STEP TWO: Prior to your scheduled CartWash, remove any recyclables from your cart and place your empty cart at the curb.
STEP THREE: Upon arrival, CartWash personnel will take the empty cart to the rear of the CartWash cleaning truck. A hydraulic lifting mechanism will lift the container, placing it over a specially designed pressure washing machine. The pressure head rotates at high speed in all directions and effectively blasts any debris inside the container. The Hydro-Chem system heats the water to more than 200 degrees, which is then captured inside the truck so that it does not go down your drains. The outside of your cart will simultaneously be pressure washed by a CartWash employee.
STEP FOUR: After the cart cleaning process, the hydraulic lift returns the container back to the location from where it was picked up. The cart will then be fresh, clean, and ready for future use.
CartWash uses a hypoallergenic solution that has a naturally pleasant scent and does not employ chemical fragrances. Our mobile units are environmentally friendly and employ practices that do not leave debris nor runoff water behind.
Frequent cleaning of your recycling cart will reduce the risk of infection and hazards from viruses such E-Coli, Salmonella and Listeria. Our all-natural solvents kill 99.9% of germs and fungi, as well as viruses.
Our self-contained cleaning system complies with all EPA regulations and is environmentally friendly.
