Brush Pick-Up Guidelines

What Can Go in Your Brush Pile

  • Only brush which is generated on properties which have City of Hopkins garbage service will be picked up.
  • Brush is defined as tree limbs, twigs, woody vines, and branches up to a maximum of 6-inches in diameter and 15 feet in length. No logs or lumber are accepted.

How to Make My Brush Pile

  • Stack brush in a neat pile on the boulevard, not in the street (no alley pick-up), with ends all one way, parallel with the street.

  • Do not use tarps under or on top of your brush (we use machinery to pick up the brush and the tarps hamper the pick-up).

Do not put brush in your garbage cart.
