Yard Waste

Yard Waste Collection

Normal weekly yard waste collection will end for the season on October 28th, 2022.

To view the pick-up schedule and map, please visit the Collection Date Maps page.

Yard Waste Bins

Currently, single dwelling houses and duplexes have individual yard waste bins for leaves, grass clippings, and small branches 1/4 inch in diameter. Please do not put branches greater than 1/4 inch in diameter in your yard waste bin as they can cause damage to the equipment at Newell Recycling. Yard waste should be placed directly into the compost bin without bagging.

Municipal Compost Site

Newell Recycling Depot at 279 Veiner Road, Brooks

Open Dates

The Newell Recycling compost yard opening TBD.

Items For Drop Off

Residents can drop off leaves, grass clippings and small branches. Food scraps are not accepted because they attract unwanted pests and create contamination in the finished compost. Additional processing must occur with the addition of materials beyond yard waste and this is currently not in effect.

Backyard Composters

The City of Brooks offers a $25 rebate for any resident that purchases a backyard composter from a local retailer. Bring your receipt to City Hall and receive a credit on your utility account.
