2017 Brush Pickup

City public works crews will collect brush from residents throughout the City in the spring during the week of May 15-19, 2017 and in the fall during the week of October 9-13, 2017.

All residents must have any brush to be picked up properly placed out along the edge of the road prior to City crews servicing their neighborhood.  In order to maintain efficient operations, crews will not be dispatched back to a neighborhood to collect brush piles that were not out in time for the initial collection.  

To ensure collection of their brush, residents will need to have their brush properly placed prior to May 15, 2017 for the spring collection and prior to October 9, 2017 for the fall collection.  

Properly placed brush shall consist of woody vegetative material less than 24 inches in diameter and no more than eight (8) feet in length. NOTE THAT THE ALLOWABLE DIAMETER HAS BEEN REDUCED FROM 32 INCHES TO 24 INCHES. This can include brush, tree limbs, and tree trunks that are cut as required to meet the dimensional requirements indicated above. A partial list of materials that are not acceptable and will not be picked up includes: grass clippings, leaves, yard and garden debris, dirt, rocks, root balls, scrap wood, sawn lumber, plywood, building materials, bricks, concrete, garbage, and recyclables.

Brush shall be piled off the edge of the road with the butt ends facing the roadside.
