2014 Spring Clean-Up

April 28th to May 9th, 2014

Each May the Public Works Department offers a free annual Spring Clean-Up service to our residents which includes picking up bundled tree limbs and bagged leaves.

In an effort to make our Spring Clean-Up Program truly green, the City of Lafayette will not accept yard waste in plastic or biodegradable bags.

This year we will be offering two options for Spring Clean-Up:

Option 1:
Have your landscape waste ready in compostable or paper yard bags only, for pick-up. Have tree limbs cut 8' or shorter, not weighing over 100 pounds.  All items need to be placed in the curb/gutter-area of the street by 7:00am of the scheduled pick-up in your area.  We will be unable to go back and pick up items that weren't out by 7:00am.

April 28th South of Baseline, East Hwy 287
April 30th South of Baseline, West of Hwy 287
May 5th North of Baseline, East of Hwy 287
May 7th North of Baseline, West of Hwy 287

**
Dates may be subject to change due to weather or emergency responsibilities.

Option 2:

Service Center hours: 7am to 3:30pm, Monday - Friday
PLEASE NOTE: The Avalon site only accepts yard waste during Spring Clean-Up Program dates
  • Bring your landscape waste to the Service Center at 1700 Avalon Ave. and dispose of it in the bins available. Take tree limbs to the back of the building.
  • If plastic bags will be used to transport your material, please empty them, then take them back home with you.

Biodegradable vs Compostable
Please be aware that there are two types of earth friendly bags:  Biodegradable and Compostable.  For the purpose of Spring Clean-up, only compostable bags will be accepted. Visually, compostable bags will have a compostable logo. Paper Kraft, lawn and leaf bags also qualify as compostable.
 
The following Lafayette retailers will have compostable bags available for purchase:   

•   Sprouts                                   •   Vitamin Cottage  
•   JAX Ranch & Home                  •   Walmart
•   King Soopers 

Please see our pick up schedule for your neighborhood date.
