Brush Pick Up

For residential refuse customers

Free Brush Pick Up To Be Provided July 27–30

Due to the recent storm, the City will be providing free brush pick-up July 27–30 on the same day as your garbage pick up. No call-in required. Regular placement, size, and eligibility restrictions still apply. See brush pick up guidelines below.

Regular Brush Pick Up (resumes August 4)

Brush is collected curbside every Tuesday, weather permitting (excluding holidays). You must schedule a pickup by calling 952-939-1382 before 2 pm the previous Monday.

Brush pick up guidelines

  • Stack brush in a neat pile on the boulevard, not in the street (NO alley pick up), with 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 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 refuse containers.
  • Only brush which is generated on Hopkins’ residential properties 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.


  • Solid Waste Coordinator


Drop off site

Hopkins refuse customers can also drop off their brush and yard waste for free at the drop off site, open mid-spring through November.
