Leaf Bag Fall Collection, Yard Waste Season Extension, Special Access to Transfer Station

DPW will begin collecting biodegradable brown paper leaf bags on Monday, October 28, 2019, through Friday, December 13, 2019 (weather permitting). During this time period, 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, biodegradable 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.

Yard Waste Paid Subscribers: The 2019 yard waste season has been extended through the week of December 13, 2019. It is not too late to renew your yard waste barrel (if you have not done so already). Please be aware that the fee is not pro-rated, and your payment will be applied for the 2019 season only. Access our yard waste renewal application form and online payment center here.

Free Access to Transfer Station for Leaf Bag Disposal on Saturdays in November: This year Bristol residents will have the opportunity to bring their leaf bags to the Transfer Station located at 685 Lake Avenue each Saturday during November from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. A valid driver's license will be required for confirmation of residency. There is no charge for this and you do not need a Transfer Station Pass.
