Yard Waste Pickup & Disposal - Public Works

Yard waste including grass, leaves, and brush is not eligible for weekly curbside pickup.  However, Derby Public Works offers other disposal options for Derby residents.

Leaves & Brush

Derby Public Works conducts a special curbside leaf pickup, 3 days per week, from October until December.  Additional details to be announced.

  • Leaves only must be placed in biodegradable paper bags.
  • Brush must be cut into 4 to 5 foot lengths, bound (if possible), and placed neatly at the curb out of the flow of traffic.


Grass will not be picked up by the City’s trash vendor or Derby Public Works.  However, residents can bring grass clippings to the Derby Transfer Station for disposal.
