Gardner MA Residents to Enjoy Unlimited Yard Waste Pickup Buffet

During the week of April 5 -8, 2022, Gardner residents can put out an unlimited amount of yard waste for pickup on their regular trash pickup day. That is, if you follow the simple rules: Grass clippings and leaves may be placed in paper yard waste bags, loose in open barrels with no lid, or in open cardboard boxes. Sticks less than 2 inches thick and up to 3 feet long may be placed in bundles. All bundles and containers must weigh less than 50 pounds each. The NO NO’s: Don’t put the stuff in plastic bags. Don’t include rocks, gravel, or dirt. Don’t procrastinate, how often do you hear the word “unlimited”?


2022 Yard Waste Dates: Yard Waste is picked up the first full week of each month during the months of April-October.  In November, there are two weeks of yard waste pickup, the first full week and the third week of the month.
