  • Brush (tree limbs, bush cuttings, and similar) cut to no longer than 5 feet in length and no larger than 6 inches in diameter. Each household is limited to one pile not more than 4 feet long by 4 feet high by 5 feet deep. All piles are to be placed curbside next to your driveway. PLEASE NOTE: Larger piles and brush thrown in the ditch will not be picked up.

  • Leaves in transparent bags or other containers that can be placed or emptied into the collection truck. Please place bagged leaves away from your regular trash so it will not be missed. PLEASE NOTE: Leaves are not to be raked into the street.
