Yard waste collection begins Monday in Columbus

With the warmer weather, Columbus trash crews will be starting the compost and chipper program earlier than normal this year.

According to the city’s department of public works, the program will kick off on Monday. You should put your compost toters and brush out by 7 a.m. on the same day as your normal trash toters. You can put grass, leaves, flowers or garden debris in your compost toter and up to one armful of brush can go into your trash toter. But city crews ask that you don’t put anything woody into your compost toter.

When you put the toter to the curb, they also ask that you leave at least two feet between the trash and compost toters.

If you have any questions, or if you need to call in for crews to pick up a large pile of trash, you can call 812-376-2508..
