2017 Fall Yard Waste Collection

NORWALK, Conn. – This is a press release, presented in the format in which it was sent:

2017 Fall Yard Waste Collection

 

Yard Waste Collection is for Residents of Norwalk who receive City garbage collection.

 

Residents MUST have their Yard Waste curbside by 6:00 AM on the MONDAY of their scheduled week of collection, as the truck will pass by only once during that week. Once the truck passes it will NOT return until the second scheduled collection.

The 2017 Fall Yard Waste collection Schedule is as follows:

 

  • November 6-10:                      Residents with Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday garbage collection
  • November 13-17:                    Residents with Thursday and Friday garbage collection
  • Nov 27-Dec 1:             Residents with Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday garbage collection
  • December 4-8:                        Residents with Thursday and Friday garbage collection

For example, if your normal garbage collection day is on a Thursday, your Yard Waste will be picked up on the weeks of November 13th and December 4th. Your Yard Waste will be picked up any time during those weeks, not on a particular day.

GENERAL INFORMATION & GUIDELINES

 

Leaves, brush and grass clippings are on Connecticut’s list of mandatory recycling items. 

DO NOT MIX THESE ITEMS WITH GARBAGE.  The City of Norwalk encourages you to compost at home and mulch your grass clippings into your lawn.
