Brush Collection Schedule

This map shows the progress of brush collections. Collection will be done one quadrant at a time starting with quadrant 1 & and working in a clockwise direction.

Brush Collection Rules, Regulations and Requirements

REQUIREMENTS & PLACEMENT - Brush must not exceed 6 inches in diameter and 6 feet in length. Brush should be big enough to be collected with a pitchfork. Brush must be placed neatly at the curb with all limbs facing the same direction in an accessible area.

BRUSH NOT COLLECTED BY THE CITY - Commercially cut brush; brush cut from vacant lots or from businesses or apartments; brush mixed with other materials such as garbage, junk or household trash; brush that does not meet the size requirements, i.e. stumps; brush placed in inaccessible areas, i.e. under wires, tree branches or blocked by vehicles.

EXCESS BRUSH LOAD FEE - Brush in excess of one load (ten cubic yards) shall be picked up at the curb upon request from the citizen for a fee. No excess brush loads will be collected during leaf season (November 1 through January 1).

COLLECTION SCHEDULE - January 1 through October 31, collection usually takes 21 days or less. Collection may take more than 21 days if there is heavy brush volume, such as after a storm.

November 1 - January 15, brush collection is very limited because of loose leaf collection. However, small branches, sticks and shrubbery clippings placed in yard carts with a valid collection sticker will be collected weekly on your regular yard cart collection day. No excess brush loads will be collected during leaf season.
