City to provide free pickup of yard debris

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

It’s that time of year again. Take pride in Carson City by pruning trees, shrubs and raking up leaves.

Public Works crews will begin picking up garden and yard debris at 7:30 a.m. each day through Friday.

Residents are asked to place the material they wish to have picked up near the curb in plain view. There will be no more pickups for this year after Friday.

The leaves must be bagged; the limbs must be less than 6 feet long, no larger than 4 inches in diameter and tied in bundles.

Bags and bundles cannot exceed 60 pounds each or they will not be picked up.

Materials must be limited to vegetation only – leaves, limbs, prunings, etc.

Items such as household garbage, old appliances, furniture or lumber will not be accepted.

Citizens must call to be put on the list for pickup. Call Carson City Public Works at 887-2355 to be put on the list for free pickup.
