Yard Waste

Yard waste collection is a residential-only service offered by the Department of Sanitation. This weekly service is provided at no additional charge to single-family residences utilizing paid green-cart curbside garbage collection and in good standing with Conway Corporation utilities. Curbside collection occurs on the same day as the resident's regularly scheduled garbage collection day.

Yard waste is banned from being placed in either of the green and blue curbside carts. State regulations do not permit yard waste in landfills, and yard waste is not permitted within the recycling stream. Curbside carts found with yard waste inside will not be collected.

Do you live outside the Conway city limits? If so, contact your city or county government offices for provider information. The Department of Sanitation provides collection services only within the Conway city limits.

Collection Guidelines

Curbside yard waste collection will occur under the following guidelines:

  • Yard waste collection is provided for only general yard debris, such as grass clippings, twigs, and leaves.
  • Yard waste must be placed at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on your regular collection day.
  • Yard waste must be placed within 2-feet of the curb.
  • No more than 10 biodegradable brown paper bags or resident-owned containers will be collected per collection day (32-gallon maximum).
  • Filled bags and containers must not exceed 50-pounds.
  • Stacked brush piles must not exceed 10-feet (L) x 10-feet (W) x 3-feet (H).
  • Provided yard waste services are not applicable for tree removal.
  • Animal waste of any kind will not be accepted and will prevent collection.
  • Yard waste placed in plastic bags of any kind (including plastic bags labeled for trash, leaves, compost, and yard) will not be accepted and will prevent collection.
  • Brush and limbs generated as a result of contracted work will not be collected curbside. Conway ordinance (O-77-12) requires that all professional tree trimming/cutting service providers haul away any yard waste they generate.
