The spring yard waste collection effort in Springfield gets underway Monday.
City residents can leave yard waste in paper bags or cans by the curbside. City crews will move through neighborhoods to pick up the items.
The collection period runs through May 3rd.
City residents who can show proof of residency can also take their yard waste directly to the Evans Recycling facility on J. David Jones Parkway between 7am and 5pm weekdays, and 7 to noon on Saturdays.
