Spring Brush Pick-Up

March 1, 2024

2024 Spring Brush Pick-Up begins on Monday, April 1. Homeowners must have brush at the curb by 7 a.m.

The Spring Brush Collection Status Dashboard will be updated at the end of each business day so you can track where crews have been.

PREPARE:
  • Limit on length is 12 feet.
  • This year our "out by date" is Monday, April 1 at 7:00 a.m.
  • All brush must be placed at the curb, not in the alley.
  • Pile brush PARALLEL with street away from mailboxes, trees, fire hydrants and light poles.
  • Do not tie into bundles - stack loosely.
  • Place small clippings and twigs in personal garbage cans (not in City issued Toters) so they can be easily dumped.
  • City crews will take branches, bushes, logs, stumps, firewood and Christmas trees.
  • Crews will begin on the WEST side of town this year and work their way EAST.
  • Once crews have been down your street, THEY WILL NOT RETURN. A supervisor will check daily to make sure all brush piles were picked up.

  • If other items such as ornamental grasses, weeds, sod or leaves are mixed with the brush pile, everything will be left and the homeowner will be responsible for removal of all items.
