Brush Collection – Begins September 25

Brush collection will begin Monday, September 25.  In order to ensure collection, have materials placed at the curb no later than 7:00 am on September 25.  Brush and limbs should be placed at the curb loosely, not bundled. Stumps and limbs must be smaller than 12″ diameter and 10′ in length in order to get picked up. Brush mixed with leaves or other yard debris will not be collected.  For cul-de-sacs, please do not place brush in the cul-de-sac green space as it may block fire hydrants and makes it 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.  Please note that collection is by ward, and is not associated with normal refuse and recycling services.  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.
