Yard Waste Pickup Program

Oxford residents may dispose of brush and yard waste (no grass) at the curbside on normal refuse pick-up days, free of charge (see schedule below).

Requirements

  • You must tie brush in bundles no longer than three feet in length and not heavier than 50 pounds. You should tie brush with a natural fiber cord (cotton, linen, twine). We will not accept brush tied with wire, plastic, or nylon cord.
  • Place smaller yard waste items in paper bags and leave open. We will not accept yard waste placed in cans or plastic bags. Place yard waste items separate from refuse.
  • Limit yard waste to six (6) bundles or bags per pick up and place yard waste at the pick-up site no later than 7:00am on normal refuse days.
  • The City of Oxford Yard Waste Collection Program does not accept grass clippings. However, Rumpke Waste Removal will accept bagged grass clippings displaying appropriate stickers. You may purchase bags and stickers at local hardware stores. You may also purchase stickers at the Municipal Building Utility Window.
