The City, at its discretion, will not collect entire tree (s) placed in the right of way as a result of work by a contractor or are of such size and multitude, that it surpasses the intent of the Tree Clipping collected Ordinance 94.07. THIS IS NOT AN UNLIMITED BRUSH COLLECTION.
For cul-de-sacs, please do not place brush in the cul-de-sac green space as it may block fire hydrants and/or it is unmanageable for City equipment to remove.
There will be one citywide sweep of all four wards. Once the crew leaves a street, they will not return.
