Yard Waste Disposal
It is unlawful to dispose of yard waste in the Borough Yard. Yard waste, as described below and collected by the Rosslyn Farms Street Department, will be disposed of at composting facilities in other municipalities. Our access to these facilities is dependent on Rosslyn Farms adhering to these rules.
Leaves should be placed near the edge of pavement in rows for easy pick-up with the leaf vacuum. Small amounts of leaves may be placed in open-topped containers not to exceed a total weight of 40 pounds.
Branches and Limbs
Branches must not exceed 3 inches in diameter. For ease of chipping, place all branches in the same direction near the edge of the pavement.
Residents are responsible for all branches greater than 3 inches in diameter. If you have a professional tree service for pruning or tree removal they are responsible to dispose of all materials generated by the service.
Brush cuttings and Weeds
Brush cuttings and weeds should be placed at the edge of pavement for easy pick-up with a pitchfork. Brush cuttings and weeds may also be
placed in open-topped containers not to exceed a total weight of 40 pounds.
Christmas trees should be placed near the edge of the pavement.
NO grass clippings
NO stones, dirt or animal waste
NO branches greater than 3 inches in diameter
NO tree stumps
Grass clippings will NOT be picked up by the Street Department. Grass clippings should be disposed of in garbage bags and left out during regular garbage pickup. Please do not allow your mower to blow grass clippings into the street as they will be washed into the storm sewers and ultimately to the creeks and streams. If you have a professional lawn service, they are responsible to collect and dispose of grass clippings from your yard.
