Yard waste like grass clippings, leaves, twigs, branches, shrubbery and other garden residues can be collected weekly through Hilliard’s waste collection services. The city collects yard waste every Tuesday, unless it’s a holiday week.

Organic waste should be placed in brown paper bags or rigid containers with Hilliard’s yard waste stickers. Stickers are available at the Hilliard Municipal Building (3800 Municipal Way).

Branches must be less than four feet long and tied into bundles with string or twine. Each container, bag or bundle must weigh less than 50 pounds and be free of rocks, dirt and plastic bags.

Residents can call Hilliard 311 or the Service Request Center at 614-876-7361 ext. 311 to schedule a time for pickup.

Trimmings are required to be four feet or longer and only consist of tree and shrub clippings.

After Christmas, residents can place used trees on the curb to be picked up and processed by the city’s chipper service.
