Springfield residents … get your yard waste ready!
The Springfield Public Works Department is teaming up with Evans Recycling in a month-long collection beginning in April. The new program is meant to give residents some choices and also save the city from contracting out waste haulers.
The city will do curbside pickup of yard waste. This is different than in past programs where the city contracted the pickup to waste haulers. Residents can also drop yard waste off at Evans Recycling Monday through Saturday from 7am to 3pm at 2100 J. David Jones Parkway past Oakridge Cemetery. Y
ard waste brought to Evans can be loose, in a plastic back to dump, leaving the plastic bag in a nearby dumpster, or you can leave full yard waste bags at the recycler.
Public Works Director Mark Mahoney says that residents are asked to hold off until the fall to take limbs curbside or to the recyclers.
