Brush Collection

The window to schedule brush collection in April will open on Monday, April 2, and will remain open for scheduling thru April 9.  If you need brush collected during the month of April, this is your time to call 419-354-6227 and schedule a pickup.

Brush collection will be available during the months of April, May, September, and October.  Certain restrictions apply – brush must be set by the curb loose and limbs must be smaller than 6 inches in diameter and/or 6 feet in length.  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 as of such size and multitude it surpasses the intent of the ordinance.

Visit the Public Works Division webpage or call 419-354-6227 with questions about the Brush Collection program.
