The unseasonably long winter in Yakima this year has led to a delay of yard waste removal by City Refuse workers.

Normally, City of Yakima residents could expect to have yard waste removed around the beginning of March but this year collection will begin on Monday, April 3rd.

Residents who pay for this service were not charged for the month of March.

For further inquiries, contact the city's Refuse Division by calling 575-6005.
