Free yard waste disposal

Free yard waste disposal is available to the residents of the City of Cheney at the Recycling Facility at 100 Anderson Road.  These Yard Waste Disposal bins are available to City of Cheney residents from March to November, weather permitting. 

Curbside yard waste service

City of Cheney residents can choose to participate in our curbside yard waste pickup program.  The city provides you with a 64 gallon green cart to be used for curbside pickup of yard waste.  This service runs from April 1st through October 31st of each year.  Yard waste carts are emptied every Monday for the entire city.  There is a fee of $12.00 per month fee that will be added to your utility bill.  During the months that the service is inactive, simply keep your yard waste cart in storage for the next year. 

Acceptable yard waste materials:

  • leaves
  • grass clippings
  • pinecones
  • pine needles
  • weeds (except herbicide tainted material)
  • Brush, pruning and branches are also acceptable yard waste material but must be no larger than two inches in diameter and four feet in length

All of the above materials must be removed from bags before being placed in bin or cart.

Unacceptable Materials:

  • No processed lumber
  • Sheetrock
  • Household garbage

Absolutely NO rocks, concrete, scrap metal or plastic may be placed in the yard waste bins and carts! These materials will damage the grinder, and could result in injury to our crews!

Commercial landscape businesses are required to obtain an annual commercial landscape permit for the disposal of yard waste collected within the city limits only.  The commercial landscape business must also have a current City of Cheney Business License .
