YARD WASTE AND CHRISTMAS TREE 
COLLECTION GUIDE

 Dear Burlington Resident,

Enclosed in this flyer is a guide to the “Yard Waste Collection and Christmas Tree Pickup”. 

Yard Waste Collection and Christmas Tree Pickup follow a Monday through Friday pickup.  Your yard waste collection day MAY NOT BE THURSDAY.

Although trash pickup is on Thursdays for the entire town, Yard Waste collection follows a Monday through Friday pickup (with different neighborhoods scheduled on different days of the week).  This allows us to employ less yard waste trucks in the Town and also allows for those missed the previous day to be picked up because we have a truck in town every day.

Enclosed please find a map showing what day your street’s “Yard Waste/Christmas Tree” pickup is.  If you do not find your street, please look for a street close to yours to find your day or visit our website.

Also you will find the dates for 2016 Christmas tree pickup and the Spring and Fall Yard Waste Pickup.

If your yard waste collection is “missed” – meaning you had it out to the curb by 7 am on your day and it was not picked up, please call the DPW on the first missed day so that we can have the truck come back and pick up your missed yard waste/tree.

As always, if you have questions please call the DPW at 781-270-1670.
