Curbside Brush Collection

Curbside brush collection is provided twice per year. Customers receive notification on a door hanger of their week of collection 7-10 days before collection begins. These guidelines apply:

  • The date on the door hanger states when your brush pile should be set out. It is NOT the actual day of collection. Collections can take up to a week to complete.
  • Brush piles should be no more than eight cubic yards and placed within eight feet of the curb.
  • Your pile should be ready for pickup no later than 7:00 am on the Monday of your scheduled collection week.
  • Residents can schedule an out of cycle brush pick up for a fee by calling 3-1-1.
  • For paper bagged leaves, call 3-1-1 for a special leaf collection.
  • Piles should not be obstructed, in front of parked cars or under low hanging tree limbs.
  • Do not place any material on vacant lots .

The property owner will be in violation of City Code, Chapter 14 and may receive a fine of up to $2,000.00 per day along with collection and disposal fees if their pile contains non-brush material, is obstructed or is set out after crews have passed the residence.
