Yard Waste

Yard waste is considered plant material that comes from lawn maintenance and other gardening and landscaping activities.

The city of Cortez provides a chipper/mulching truck to assist property owners in neighborhood clean-up. The removal of dead branches and yard waste from around homes greatly improves the appearance of neighborhoods and the city as a whole. Since the chipper is provided for residential property clean-up only, NO COMMERCIAL USERS ARE ALLOWED.

Commercial users also include private contractors working at residences.

Minimum Fee (20 min. or less): $50.00

Charge each additional 20 min: $20.00

Hourly charge: $90.00

Minimum chipper fee of $50.00 must be paid prior to scheduling the chipping job. Additional minutes/charges are to be paid when the chipping job is concluded, or within one week of completion.
