Bedford’s Department of Public Works plans curbside pick-up of yard waste next week, April 8 to 12.

Yard waste is prohibited from regular trash. For the curbside collection, residents should place their yard waste in paper bags or open barrels with no lids on Monday, April 8.

Acceptable yard waste for the curbside yard waste collection consists of leaves, pine needles, grass clippings, garden trimmings, weeds and tree material up to one inch (1”) in diameter.

Tree limbs more than one inch (1”) in diameter will not be collected at the curb but can be brought to the Compost Center and added to the brush pile.

Any yard waste in plastic bags will be left behind.

Other Options for Disposing of Yard Waste

Residents may compost yard waste on their own property or bring the material to Bedford’s Compost Center on Carlisle Road.

Only paper leaf bags, available at a variety of stores, may be dropped off at the Compost Center.  Residents should empty plastic trash bags or containers of yard waste at the Compost Center and bring them home for reuse.

Bedford’s Compost Center is open on Wednesdays (from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm) and on Saturdays (from 8 am until 1 pm),

Compost Bins and Kitchen Scrap Baskets

Anyone interested in composting at home can purchase a Compost Bin for $45 from the Department of Public Works at 314 Great Road, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The DPW also has kitchen scrap buckets available for $7.00 each.
