Yard Waste Site is OPEN for the 2024 Season

The City of Hartford provides a free service for disposal of yard clippings, leaves, and tree branches.  Dumpster containers are located on Railroad Street south of the High School.  This program will be offered the first Saturday in April through the Saturday after Thanksgiving, weather permitting.


Site Hours:

Saturdays 9am-4pm 

Tuesdays & Thursdays 4-8pm until Sept 15th.  After September 15, the site will close at dusk instead of 8pm



Only yard clippings and leaves are allowed in the dumpsters; garbage is prohibited.  A small garbage can is available for plastic bags.  Tree branches may be unloaded by the dumpsters

Please remember this is a free service for Hartford City residents only – you must live within Hartford City Limits. Commercial dumping is prohibited. The site is monitored.
