Brush Pickup

Curbside Brush Pickup Scheduled for February 5, 2018

Curbside brush collection is scheduled for the first full week of February, beginning Monday, February 5 at 7:00 a.m. This collection will be for unbundled brush and does not include bagged leaves or brush at this time. 

Residents must have all brush unbundled and no larger than 8 inches in diameter to accommodate chipper. Additionally, for larger brush such as tree limbs, please face the cut end towards the street.

Residents may also dispose of their Christmas trees, however please make sure the tree is clean of lights and all ornaments. Only cleaned trees will be accepted

Firewood, tree stumps and root balls will not be accepted because of the potential damage it may cause to the chipper.

Crews will pass down each street once. Residents are asked to be patient. If the amount of brush is excessive or there is inclement weather, it may take the entire week to finish brush collection.
