BPU Yard Waste Site

The BPU operates a seasonal Yard Waste Site for residential Solid Waste customers.

The Site is located at 1001 Monroe Street, on the dead-end off Eighth Street in the City. The Site is open seasonally from spring to fall on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Hours of Operation:

  • Saturdays from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. effective 4/15/17 11/11/17
  • Wednesdays from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. effective 5/3/17 9/27/17


  • The Yard Waste Site is restricted to use by BPU Solid Waste customers only.
  • Solid Waste Rates pay for operation of the Site.
  • Contractors are not permitted to use the site.

Window Stickers:

  • Customers who want to use the Site must display a BPU Yard Waste Site sticker on the rear driver side window of their vehicles.
  • The window stickers are free-of-charge to BPU Solid Waste residential customers.
  • Only one sticker will be provided for each customer account.
  • A yellow 2017-2018 sticker is required and is available at the BPU Customer Service Office, 92 Steele St. during normal BPU office hours.
  • If you trade in your car with your sticker on it, you must provide proof from the car dealer before you may request a new sticker.
  • Use of the window stickers allow BPU employees to identify BPU Solid Waste residential customers.
  • Ensuring that non-BPU customers are not using the site, helps reduce the cost of the service to our customers.

  • Accepted Items:

    • The site accepts leaves, grass clippings and brush.
    • A list of acceptable yard waste is attached to the sticker.
    • Metal, lumber, wood, tires, drywall and other construction materials will not be accepted.
