Finally, we have great weather and many of us are doing yard work. The Town of Matthews wants to ensure that your yard waste is picked up in an efficient and timely manner.
Please remember to do the following:
1. Yard waste must meet town requirements for size and volume- items such as tree limbs should be no longer than 5 ft, no more than 6 inches in diameter and no more than what one person can collect in 20 minutes.
2. The cut end of the limbs/branches should be placed toward the street and piles should be small and neat. This will help us collect the materials faster.
3. Any work that citizens contract for- tree trimming, shrub trimming, mowing etc., - the resulting yard waste must be collected and removed by the contractor.
