Brush Pickup Begins Soon

The Annual Brush Pickup is on the 4th Monday in October. Branches must be in the parkway by NO LATER THAN 7:00 AM on the first day of pickup (Monday). Once the contractor has completed your street, they will not return.

Residents who have brush that is too large to be picked up by the normal landscape waste through Groot can place it beside the road. It will be collected by a grapple-claw mechanism and removed to a remote site for chipping. This process will allow the work to be performed quicker, quieter, and with less chipping debris on the street. Please ensure that the brush conforms to the following requirements as the Village cannot require the contractor to return to a site if it does not comply:

  • Branches removed by contractors are NOT eligible for pickup. The program is intended to assist residents who perform their own work.
  • Branches may not exceed 8" in diameter.
  • Branches must be stacked neatly on the parkway, parallel to the curb, and three feet away from stationery items. (trees, hydrants, etc.)
  • Branches must not be tied with string or wire
  • Branches must be free of wire, staples, nails, or metal of any kind.
  • Rootballs, stumps, lumber, debris, rocks, grasses, or any non-woody material will not be picked up.
  • Branches and twigs shorter than 18 inches should be placed in a yard waste bag for removal by your waste carrier.
  • Branches must not be placed in the parkway more than three weeks before the chipping program for your area begins.
