- Contained within 35 gallon or smaller waterproof, rigid containers with two handles.. Containers cannot exceed 50 pounds.

- Leaves contained in brown paper yard waste bags not to exceed 50 pounds.

- Bundles of brush not exceeding 50 pounds in weight and 2 feet in diameter, containing individual branch lengths not exceeding four feet and individual branch diameters not exceeding three inches.
