AURORA - Spring yard waste collection in Aurora begins on Monday, April 4 and will run for two weeks. The collection of bundled brush begins on the same day and runs through early November.
Yard Waste Collection for Two Weeks
The Spring Yard Waste Collection program runs from Monday, April 4 through Friday, April 15. During these two weeks, residents do not have to use waste stickers to dispose of yard waste.
Yard waste must be placed in a 30-gallon kraft paper bag and not exceed 60 pounds.  Yard waste mixed with garbage or yard waste in a garbage can or plastic bag will not be collected.
Beginning Monday, April 18, a waste sticker, which is the same one used for excess garbage, must be attached to the bag. 
Bundled Brush Collection through Early November
The Bundled Brush Collection program also begins on Monday, April 4 and runs through Friday, November 4. No waste stickers are required for this collection.
Branches and limbs that are ½ inch to 4 inches in diameter and 2 to 4 feet in length must be bundled and tied. The bundled brush should be placed at the curb in neat, manageable piles with the cut side of the limbs facing the street.  Branches and limbs that are less than ½ inch in diameter are considered yard waste.
Brush that is not bundled and tied will not be collected.  In addition, brush resulting from commercial tree trimming, which should be removed by the contractor, will also not be collected. 
Collection on Regular Garbage Day
Both yard waste and bundled brush collection will take place on the regular garbage collection day and should be placed at the curb by 6 a.m. that morning.
