We know there can be a lot of yard waste to pick up, so you may have up to three green carts for your household. Contact TTSD at 530-583-7800 to order your green cart(s). Delivery fees apply.

Green bag service ended in June 2018.

How do I use my cart?

  1. Place yard trimmings (pine cones, pine needles, branches, grass clippings) directly into your yard waste cart. No bags!
  2. Place your cart on the edge of the street no later than 6 am on your service day. Carts should be 3 ft away from other carts or other objects, with the cart handle facing away from the street center. Lids must be completely closed.
  3. After service, remove carts from the street. Carts cannot be left in the Town’s right-of-way.

Are you unable to roll back your cart after each service?

TTSD will roll your cart in and out on your service day with a paid subscription. Contact TTSD directly to set up by calling 530-583-7800.
