Yard Waste Collection

Yard waste collection lasts from the first full week of April until the last full week of November. We are unable to add this service to all areas of the City. Please call (406) 657-8260 for more information.
Things to Know
  • Collection will be made by a dedicated side load truck.
  • Please have your yard waste container out by 7:00 am on your collection day. Barrels are not to be stored on the street. You may put them out the night before your collection day, they will need to be removed from the street after collection has been made.
  • Make sure you place your container four feet away from any obstructions or other containers.
  • Types of yard waste to place in your container include:
    • Grass clippings
    • Leaves
    • Weeds
    • Garden waste
    • Shrub pruning
    • Smaller branches or twigs
  • Larger branches or twigs that will not fit into the barrel need to be tied in bundles that do not exceed four feet in length, two feet in diameter, or exceed 75 pound.
  • Do not place dirt, sod, rocks, animal droppings, or plastic bags in your yard waste container.
  • If you have a lawn service doing your yard work they are required to haul off the yard waste that they generate.
