Yard Waste

Yard waste is picked up curbside with your regular weekly rubbish. Yard waste can be placed in trash cans, plastic bags or lawn and leaf paper bags and does not have to be separated from your regular rubbish.

North Royalton residents can continue to drop off excess yard waste on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. at our Service Center, located at 11545 Royalton Road. Yard waste must be bagged or bundled. WE DO NOT ACCEPT LOOSE MATERIALS! The same curbside guidelines are followed for drop-off.

Acceptable yard waste items include:
  • Grass clippings and leaves (must be contained in paper or plastic bags)
  • Small tree branches and bush branches (must be cut to 4 ft. lengths and bundled weighing less than 50 lbs.)

Unacceptable yard waste items include:
  • Loose or un-bagged materials
  • Commercial material or items from businesses
  • Stumps, root balls or wood from tree removals
  • Construction material, dirt, etc.
  • Excessive material from large garden or landscaping projects

This service is for routine yard maintenance only. If you have large amounts of yard waste, you must take it to a yard waste facility. Hours, prices and specifications are determined by the facility.
