Yard Waste Site - Compost Facility
Leaf & Grass Clipping -- Curb Side Collection for Residents

Residents are reminded that the burning of leaves and grass clippings is prohibited within the city limits.  Between April 1 and November 30, the City of Clear Lake provides curbside leaf and grass clipping collection within the city limits for its residential customers.  Absolute Waste Removal will collect leaves and grass clippings in biodegradable bags or in an open garbage container on your regular garbage collection day.  Absolute Waste Removal will initially pick up your garbage AND then return later the same day to pick up leaf and grass clippings.  Be sure to have all of the above at your curb by 7 a.m. that morning.
Alternately to your curb side collection, you may haul your leaves and grass clippings to the City's yard waste collection site located at 1419 - 2nd Avenue South. There is a concrete pad located behind the Public Works Facility for yard waste.
