Brush & Leaf Pickups

Brush and Leaves PickupsThere will be 4 brush and leaf pickups in 2024 beginning on the following Mondays:  

May 6
September 9
October 28
November 11 

The City's waste hauler will move through the City starting at 7 a.m. on these designated Mondays and work through the week until they are finished.  All brush piles and leaves (see requirements below) are required to be curbside and next to the driveway by 7 a.m. on the above designated Mondays.  Brush and leaves that are not out when the hauler goes by will not be picked up at a later date. Your regular garbage will be picked up on your normal garbage pickup day.

Pickup will include:

  • 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' x 4' x 5' with a pile weight less than 50 lbs. All piles are to be placed curbside next to your driveway and bundled if at all possible. PLEASE NOTE: Larger piles and brush thrown in the ditch will not be picked up.
  • All leaves and yard waste must be put in paper compostable yard waste bags or up to a 32-gallon trash container that can be emptied into the collection truck.  Plastic bags of any kind are NOT allowed and will not be picked up, which includes no "compostable green" or biodegradable plastic bags. 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. 
  • No grass clippings, flowers, stumps, fruit, roots, or other garden debris will be accepted. These items, as well as brush and leaves, may be disposed of at the Waste Management Metro Landfill at 12200 W. South County Line Road (414-529-6180).
