YARD WASTE AND LEAF PICKUP
THIS PROGRAM IS TO ASSIST IN YARD MAINTENANCE AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR LAND CLEARING, TREE/HEDGE REMOVAL
The yard waste policy is intended for the use of City of Fulton Residents, and excludes waste left by any professional service provider. Yard Waste does not include dirt, stone, lumber or debris resulting from entire tree removal of a private property owner or professional tree service. It is the responsibility of the service provider or property owner to remove and dispose of waste generated as a result of entire tree removal.
Yard waste and leaf pickup will begin the 1st week of April and will continue through the 4th week of June. Yard waste and leaves will not be picked up in July and August unless an extreme weather event warrants pick up.
Yard waste and leaf pickup will begin the 1st week of September and will end December 1st. Christmas trees will be picked up through the holiday season.
Residents have the option to dispose of yard waste at the City of Fulton Department of Public Works Garage dumping area located at 17 Edgarton Drive just off of Phillips Street. This area will be open to the public free of charge at all times:
Only residents located in the City of Fulton are permitted

The size of the pile per property to be put out on any given week may not exceed 8 feet in length, 3 feet in height, and 3 feet in depth (about the size of a couch)

The items must be placed into either brown paper bags, metal or plastic containers not in the street and not obstructing sidewalks in order to be disposed of.
