All yard waste, in order to be picked up, has to be in a reusable container marked with an "x" or in a paper lawn and leaf bag.
Branches and limbs must be 40lbs or less and 4 feet long or less. They can be either bundled, or in a reusable container.
Otherwise, we spotted this one evening after our yard waste was picked up, or not, in this neighbors case. The county will not pick up if it's not in an approved container, and you'll get one of these nice yellow stickers.
Don't get one of these yellow stickers!
