The special complimentary brush collection will begin March 27th and end on April 10th.

Special Guidelines:

  • Registration is required. Collections will not be made without an appointment to set up a scheduled day for collection. 
  • Fee: $0
  • Normal household trash will not be removed.
  • Set out bulky items no later than 8:00 a.m. on your scheduled day.
  • Place bulky item piles within four (4) feet of the curb. Do not block side walk.
  • Do not place brush material in front of parked cars, near fences, trees, mailboxes, beneath overhead wires, low-hanging tree limbs, or on top of water meters.
  • Do not place items curbside prior to 48 hours before the scheduled day. 
  • Keep large bulky limbs and logs separate from smaller brush material. This will help us process the material more easily.
