Excess plant materials & wood up to 6’’ in diameter (tied in bundles not longer than 4’) will be collected in the bulky program. Please contain all loose plant materials such as leaves and small landscape trimmings in paper bags, compostable bags, or small cardboard boxes to help divert these materials from landfill disposal. Compostable plant materials set out in plastic bags will be landfilled.

PLEASE NOTE: Pressure-treated lumber and other treated wood waste (referred to as TWW, ex. from fencing or decking) are not accepted in the Bulky & Reuse Pick-Up program because these materials have been considered hazardous waste in California since 2021. For information about where to transport treated wood waste, please reference the Department of Toxic Substances Control Requirements for Generators of Treated Wood Waste (TWW) Fact Sheet.

Natural wood that is painted or has a surface finish such as lacquer, shellac, polyurethane, and varnish is not considered TWW, and may be set out for pick-up in the Bulky and Reuse program.
