Brush Pick Up

For residential refuse customers

Free Brush Pick Up
October 12–15, 2015

BRUSH will be picked up for free on your regular refuse day during the week of October 12–15. You do not need to call to schedule this pick up. Brush is defined as tree limbs, twigs and branches up to a maximum of 6 inches in diameter and 15 feet in length.

  • Stack brush in a neat pile on the boulevard, NOT in the street (NO alley pick-up)—butt ends all one way, parallel to the street.
  • Keep brush at least 5 feet away from overhead wires, fences, refuse containers, parked cars, etc.
  • DO NOT put brush in refuse container.

After October 15, brush collection will resume on Tuesdays (weather permitting), for a fee, and must be scheduled (see information below).
