It's no April Fool's joke: The city of Billings' solid waste division is starting this year's yard waste collection in the green bins on Monday, April 1.

The agency released Monday a list of tips to ensure timely collection:

  • Yard Waste is now collected on the same day as regular garbage day. Don’t forget to have the bins out by 7 a.m., do not overfill, and make sure the lid is closed.
  • Large limbs & branches can be collected for $5 per 3 bundles. Limit all pieces to 4 feet in length and 6 inches in diameter. Tie pieces in bundles and limit bundles to 75 pounds in weight and 2 feet in diameter. Please call 406-657-8315 option #3 to schedule a collection.
  • If you do not have a green yard waste bin and would like to request one, please contact our Customer Services team at 406-657-8315 option #3. Each residence is allowed up to two green bins.

Reach out on social media [], call the Solid Waste office at 406-657-8285, or send an email to with any questions.
