Brush Collection

Weather permitting, limbs from residential yard work are collected and chipped on Monday of the same week that recyclables are picked up.

Limbs may be no larger than 5 inch in diameter and must be neatly stacked in piles no larger than 4' high x 4' wide x 8' long with cut ends facing the curb. At no time can the brush piles obstruct the sidewalk.
In order to be efficient, the time limit per stop will not exceed 15 minutes. Stack properly and plan your trimming accordingly. For more efficiency, provide walking space around each pile to allow crews to maneuver easily and chip as much as possible at each stop. 

Leaves and grass clippings will not be picked up and should not be raked into the street. Yard waste in cans or barrels will not be chipped or collected. These should be brought to the drop-off site.
