2. Tie a plastic bag (any color will do) to the handle – or –
3. Place an “X” on both sides (use spray paint or duct tape).

YARD WASTE WILL NO LONGER BE COLLECTED IF PLACED IN PLASTIC BAGS.
The reasons: plastic is not bio-degradable; therefore, will not break down, and the plastic bags are jamming up the sifting equipment which has resulted in costly repairs and time.  WHAT TO DO: Use your trash cans, recycle cans and/or bio-degradable PAPER bags for your yard waste. Branches and sticks to be Bundled with Twine. Branches not longer than 4 feet, not wider than 2 feet, not over 50 pounds in weight, no branches over 1.5 inches round.
