City of Scottsbluff making changes to yard waste removal pickups

Posted: Updated:

After reviewing the current yard waste program, the City ofScottsbluff has made the decision to move the yard waste pickup location to thestreet. 

Effective April 7th, residents will now put theyard waste containers curbside in front of the property rather than in thealley ways. 

By moving the pickup location the city feels this will increaseefficiency and to help us be able to grow the program effectively.  In thepast few years they have also had to deal with safety issues from the larger trucksize and hope to resolve those issues as well.

Assistant City Manager Nathan Johnson recommends residents have containers out the night before or by 6 a.m. onyour scheduled collection day. As with all collection containers, theyard waste container needs to be facing the street with the lid closed (the lidopening needs to be facing the street), it needs to be 3 feet away fromvehicles or other obstacle (mailboxes, trees, fences, buildings, etc.).
