Yard Waste Collection

The City provides curbside collection of yard waste on a seasonal basis.  Collection is weekly in early spring and late fall; every-other-week during the period in between.  Service ceases during the winter, except for Christmas tree collection in early January.

When are my upcoming collection days?


Important Reminders
  • Per State of New Hampshire and City regulations, yard waste must be separated from refuse.
  • Yard waste must be placed at the edge of the roadway and should not block sidewalks.
  • Yard waste should be put out by 7 AM of your scheduled collection day but not prior to 4 PM of the day preceding.
  • Yard waste must be tied into bundles no more than 3 feet long by 2 feet wide OR placed in the following approved containers:
    • Barrels – maximum of 33 gallons and 75 pounds; official City of Manchester Yard Waste sticker must be attached; stickers available for free at the Public Works Department office, 475 Valley Street, or at the Drop Off Facility.
    • Bags – biodegradable paper yard waste bags only; no plastic bags will be accepted
