Yard Waste

Individuals who would like their yard waste bags, like these, returned after yard waste collection should leave a container curbside where they can be placed after being emptied. The City of Sun Prairie has cancelled a brush pick up scheduled for April 6 and instead scheduled a yard waste collection for the week of April 13.

While city services will be maintained due to health guidelines that mandate distance between people and prohibit clustering of people, the updates show how Sun Prairie Department of Public Works service will be impacted:

• The citywide brush collection scheduled for the week of April 6 has been cancelled. The next scheduled collection will take place the week of May 4.

• A yard waste collection as scheduled starting on Monday, April 13. Materials must be curbside by 7 a.m.

An additional yard waste collection has been added for the week of May 11.

Yard waste is categorized as leafy vegetation that composts in a short period of time. Leaves, grass, garden waste and shrub trimmings are yard waste. Collections are scheduled in advance to attempt to meet the needs of residents and is collected curbside twice in the spring and twice in the fall.
