We only take yard waste from Boston residents. You need to show us a photo ID, utility bill, or lease as proof of your residency. 

Leaf and yard waste tips:
  • Common yard waste material includes leaves and grass clippings, branches, and yard brush.
  • Place leaves and yard debris in large paper bags. Do not use plastic bags.  
  • Tie branches with string. The maximum size for branches is three feet with a one-inch diameter.
