Spring Clean Up & Compost Site

City crews will make a spring yard waste pick-up on Monday, April 30.  This will be the only spring pick-up. 

Yard waste must be placed next to the curb by 7:00 A.M., in clear, plastic bags or in waterproof containers weighing no more than 35 pounds.  Material in cardboard boxes, colored bags, or mixed with garbage, will NOT be picked up. 

Yard waste includes leaves, vegetation and small twigs.  Larger sticks and branches must be tied up in bundles no more than 6 feet long or larger than 12 inches around.  Crews will not pick up stumps or entire trees or shrubs.

Manchester residents are also encouraged to take advantage of the City’s Compost Site, located on South Brewer Street. The compost site is open from sun up to sun down. Anyone can remove compost or brush items at the site; however, ONLY a resident of the City can bring items in. Finished compost is replenished on Mondays and Fridays at approximately 9:00am.  Please dump materials according to signs posted at the site.  It is illegal to dispose of garbage or trash at the Compost Site and violators will be fined.
