Yard Debris Collection

Yard debris collection is only offered in select areas of Clackamas County. To see if yard debris collection is available in your area, please contact us at 800-808-5901 or WM Customer Service.

If applicable your yard waste is collected every week on the same day as your trash collection.

On yard debris day, you can set out one 64-gallon WM provided roll cart (no plastic bags, please) of yard trimmings every week. Any additional 32-gallon cans, paper Kraft bags or bundles (prunings are limited to 4" in diameter and 36" in length) will be collected for an extra charge.

For the safety of our drivers, please have all limbs cut or trimmed so that they do not stick out above the rim of the container.

Item Weight Limit
Yard Debris Bag Weight Limit 45 lbs.
32 Gallon Can Weight Limit 60 lbs.
Yard Debris Bundle Weight Limit 60 lbs.
64 Gallon Roll Cart Weight Limit 100 lbs.

On Pickup Day

  • Place materials at the curb (not in the street) by 6 am on your pickup day.

  • Do not use plastic bags, recycling carts or bins, plastic liners or regular garbage cans for yard waste.

  • Place your yard waste loosely in the cart so that it falls freely when emptied.

  • When using Kraft paper yard waste bags for extra yard debris, try to avoid putting wet debris at the bottom of bag. Keep bags in dry location until pickup day to prevent bottom from falling out.

  • Tie bundles with string or twine. Bundles must be no larger than one foot by three feet.
