Hunter’s Creek neighborhood will now have Greenwood County collect our yard waste each month. Please take the time to read the regulations regarding this collection below.
- Yard Waste is to be defined as Vegetative Material such as:
- Clippings generated by cutting the grass
- Pruning debris from shrubbery
- Small Tree Parts
- Items NOT considered to be Yard Waste include:
- Debris generated by any lot clearing, professional tree removal services, or commercial lawn care/ landscapers
- Discarded furniture, appliances, old lumber, wire, landscape timbers, garden hoses, or plastic containers
- Leaves, needles, and small clippings must be bagged to prevent blowing off their trucks.
This is also a good idea to minimize the blowing of the debris along our streets.
- Greenwood County pick-up will be limited to a Once a Month, Last Week of the Month period for all homeowners
- Debris Piles:
- Piles will approximate Seven cubic yards in volume (Ten Foot Length, Six Foot Wide, and 3 Foot High), and pick-up will be limited to Twenty Bags of Yard Waste per month.
- Two small trees with parts cut in lengths no longer than 4 feet and 6 inches in diameter will be accepted for pick up
- Piles should be positioned along the edge of the adjoining road next to the homeowner’s property. (Care should be taken to prohibit that piles do not become traffic hazards).
- Any debris generated by Contracted Work is not to be included in homeowner piles
As noted above, this service will be provided during the last week of each month. Please plan accordingly to minimize placing any debris out along the street too early in the month. In doing this, it will help in minimizing so many piles of yard debris along our streets for extended periods of time.
