Leaf bag and yard waste collection

Leaf Bag Collection
The City of Bristol provides curbside leaf collection during spring and fall of each year. The spring collection period is conducted throughout the month of April. The fall collection period is conducted from the last two weeks of October through the month of November.

During these two times, leaf bags are collected on the normal rubbish collection day. Place bags at the curb by 6:00 am on your collection day. Please bring your leaf bags curbside as soon as they are filled and leave them curbside until collected. Leaf bag collection is available to all city residences eligible for curbside rubbish and recycling services.

Leaves are only collected in brown, recyclable, paper leaf bags that are available at most home and garden stores. There is no maximum limit to leaf bag collection at a residence. Leaf bags containing dirt, sand, rocks, sod, or materials other than leaves will not be collected. Leaf bags must be placed curbside and not within the residence’s property for proper collection. Loose leaf piles will not be collected.

Residential Yard Waste Collection Service
The City of Bristol offers a curbside yard waste collection service for an annual fee of $90.00 for the season. Subscribers receive a 95 gallon green yard waste container, which the City will deliver when your paid application is received.

Yard Waste Collection is weekly (usually two days after your regular rubbish collection day) from mid-April through mid-November. For 2017 collections will be April 3rd to November 11th, 2017.  See for more information.
