FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham will close its yard waste facility on Dudley Road for the season on Sunday, Dec. 9.

Today, November 30, is the final day of curbside leaf collection.

There is a brush only collection Dec 3-7.

It is on the same day as individual’s trash/recycling collection.

From Framingham DPW:

What is yard waste and brush?

  • Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass, and non-woody organic garden waste only. Yard waste does not include sod, dirt, sand, gravel, or rocks.
  • Brush is wood waste from bushes and trees that is less than 4 inches in diameter, and no greater than 4 feet in length.

Leaves, grass clippings, plant waste, and light trimmings too small to bundle: use paper leaf bags or reusable containers marked “yard waste.” Bags and containers cannot exceeded 40 pounds and 35 gallons.

Brush (sticks, twigs, branches, and shrubs): Pieces cannot exceed 4 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length. Bundle and tie with string or twine (no wire), or place in a reusable container marked “yard waste.” Bundles and any yard waste or brush not conforming to these guidelines will not be collected and will be left at the curb.

Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected.
