Casper residents with city trash service may place as many bags of leaves as they want for extra collection, according to a news release.

The city's solid waste division recommends residents do the following:

  • Curbside customers should place bagged leaves at the curb at least three feet from garbage containers not on sidewalks.
  • Alley customers may place the bags behind their property in the alley.
  • Customers should place bags out for pickup by 7 a.m. on collection day.

Extra collection days are on the first and third or second and fourth trash days of the
month.

Due to the Thanksgiving Day holiday, Thursday customers will have their trash
collected on Friday and Friday customers on Saturday. Those customers, whose extra
collection falls on that week, may place their leaves on their delayed trash day.

Residents can find their extra leaf collection day on the city’s website or by calling
(307) 235-8246.

By collecting fall leaves and yard waste separately from regular trash, the city can make compost and save landfill space. Residents also can take their yard waste -- including grass, leaves, and branches -- free of charge to the compost yard at the Solid Waste Facility,1886 Station Road.

The facility is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
