Residential Leaf & Limb Program

The city's leaf & limb collection program starts on October 1st and ends on January 9th each year.  During the off-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 after 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 before placing the remaining material in the street for collection.
