City delays yard waste collection program

DANVILLE — The Solid Waste Division of the Danville Public Works Department announces that the beginning of the spring cleanup collection period will be delayed by one week due to the weather and related conditions.

Recent weather has not been good for lawn cleanup or landscape work performed by residents. In addition, severe winter weather created construction delays in the completion of the city’s new Yard Waste Facility.

Weekly collection will now begin on Monday, April 7.

This spring cleanup period, which includes both yard waste bags and Toters, will be extended until Friday, May 2, before the Toter-Only Collection period begins on Monday, May 5, beginning with Zone B.

The Yard Waste Collection Program has three specific time periods: Spring Cleanup (weekly pickup, Toters and yard waste bags) that begins April 7 and lasts until May 2; Toter Collection (bi-weekly pickup — Toters only) from May 5 to Sept. 27 (beginning with Zone B); and Fall Cleanup (weekly pickup —Toters and yard waste bags) from Sept. 30 to Dec. 13.

During this spring cleanup period, yard waste will be collected weekly and on the same day as regular household waste service.

It should be placed at the curb or street edge no later than 6 a.m. on your collection day and no earlier than 4 p.m. the night prior to collection. Yard waste should not be placed along or in any alley.

From April 7 to May 2, all yard waste collected within the city must be placed in either a Toter with a 2014 yard waste sticker attached or an approved two-ply paper yard waste bag. Two-ply paper yard waste bags are available at various retail stores, pricing set by stores. No tape or adhesive is permitted on yard waste bags and yard waste contained in plastic bags or cardboard boxes will not be collected.

Brush should be placed no closer than 2 feet from the Toter, bundled, tied with cotton twine or string, and no larger than 3 inches in diameter or more than 4 feet long.

Yard waste stickers are $35, Toters are $65 and both are sold at the Robert E. Jones Municipal Building, 17 W. Main St., and at Danville Public Works, 1155 E. Voorhees St.

Stickers are good for one calendar year.

Yard waste zone maps and rules are available at the City of Danville website: Questions regarding the program can be directed to 431-2288.
