Brush collection is for residential customers only, and is included as part of the City garbage service ($3 monthly fee). Brush collection is not part of any business garbage service, including businesses that contract with private haulers for dumpster service.
- The City is divided into five collection areas. Each area is picked up once a week. Collections may be delayed during times of high demand, such as after storms. Brush collection does not occur on City-observed holidays.
- Brush piles must be out by 7 a.m. on collection day.
- Brush piles of up to 6 cubic yards will be picked up -- about the size of the bed of a pickup truck. Limbs should be cut into lengths of not more than 12 feet long, and should be no larger than 8 inches in diameter. Brush piles must be placed within 3 feet of the curb -- away from vehicles, low hanging wires, fences, mailboxes and tree limbs.
- Brush piles that exceed 6 cubic yards in a single week will be assessed a $50 fee per each additional 6 cubic yards.
- Brush pickup is limited to one pile per address per collection day.
- Brush piles must be free of all other trash and debris. No tires, garbage, lumber, construction debris, furniture, appliances, or anything but natural brush will be picked up.
- After the brush pile is hauled away, site cleanup of small debris, such as leaves and small twigs, is the responsibility of the resident.
- A special pickup may be requested for out of cycle collection days, but the customer will be charged a $50 collection rate per 6 cubic yards. The brush will be picked up within 48 hours of the request.
- Brush service is available for non-residential customers at a rate of $50 per 6 cubic yards.
