2016 Yard Waste Recycling [Cleanup Event]

The Yard Waste Recycling Program is one of several services provided by the Streets Department to honor the City's on-going commitment to recycling. This recycling program helps to reduce the amount of materials that reach the waste stream and saves landfill space.   

The 2016 Yard Waste Recycling Program will take place on Saturday, April 16th, 23rd & 30th from 9 AM to 3 PM - drop-off locations and material guidelines can be found by visiting philadelphiastreets.com/yard-waste

Yard waste is also accepted at the Streets Department’s six (6) Sanitation Convenience Centers throughout the year. Materials must be in biodegradable bags or bundled at the time of drop-off. The centers are open Monday through Saturday, 8am to 6pm, except holidays. Residents wishing to use the Sanitation Convenience Centers must show proof of Philadelphia residency as the centers are for City residents’ use only. Yard waste set out for collection will be picked up with rubbish and not recycled.

Citizens who require additional information regarding the disposal of yard waste or any other Streets Department service may contact the Customer Affairs Unit at (215) 686-5560.
