The Department of Public Works (DPW) will resume its regularly scheduled yard waste and construction debris pick up dates for all quadrants during the month of October in accordance with the following schedule:

Northeast Quadrant: October 3-4
Southeast Quadrant: October 10-11
Southwest Quadrant: October 17-18
Northwest Quadrant: October 24-25

October is the last month in which residents can set out yard waste and construction debris before DPW converts its equipment and staff to winter operations. Leaves only will be picked up in November and December.

Residents in the Northeast quadrant are asked to keep their set-outs in place for pick up in early October. If you are unsure of which quadrant you live in, visit www.syrgov.net/yardwaste_schedule/ to view the map.

Yard waste from City residents can also be discarded at DPW's self-drop off site at 1200 Canal St. The site is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Nov. 1.
