Yard trim/waste may be placed in heavy-duty paper bags, or heavy-duty trash cans with handles and a secure lid. Cans must be clearly labeled "Yard Waste" or "Yard Trim" to ensure collection. Cardboard boxes are not acceptable containers.
Limbs collected curbside must not exceed 4 feet in length and 3 inches in diameter and must be securely tied in bundles. Bundles of limbs, bags and/or cans of dry grass and leaves must weigh less than 60 pounds. Wet grass and leaves must weigh less than 25 pounds.
Once the yard trim/waste is collected, it is taken to the Prince George's County Yard Waste Composting Facility. This county-owned and operated composting facility processes over 50,000 tons of yard trim/waste annually.
