Dispose of your leaves and clippings with City of Bloomington yard waste service. The service accepts garden waste, grass clippings, leaves, weeds, soft garden materials, shrub and tree waste, and pruning. Twigs and branches must be three feet or less in length and three inches or less in diameter. Bundles or bags cannot be heavier than 40 pounds. Dirt, sod, rocks and wood chips are not accepted. 

Residents with yard waste service can request one additional yard waste cart for a $37.32 fee. It’s acceptable to set out up to 20 bags of yard waste in addition to your cart(s) per week. If you have more than 20 bags, save the additional bags and have them collected the following week. Yard waste season continues through November 24, weather permitting.
