Residential Leaf & Limb Program

The city's leaf & limb collection program has ended for the season.  Residents should utilize their green carts for yard waste/organics disposal.

The City of Ceres offers residential customers leaf & limb disposal pick-up service from October 1st until January 9th, on an every other week basis.  Collection of leaf & limb debris occurs on the day following the residence's scheduled recycling pick-up day.  This service is not provided for apartment complexes or businesses.

The green organics cart should be utilized for yard waste and pruning debris collection during the months that the program is not in service.
