Brush Pickup

Brush is collected once a month in May through October on the scheduled day of the month for your address. You can place sticks, twigs, and other brush out at the curb lawn or street for collection in accordance with the schedule below. 

You don't need to request brush collection- just place your prepared brush material out for collection for the scheduled collection in your area. 

Curbside brush collection happens monthly from May through October. Your collection day depends on what area of the city you live in. You can find your collection day for brush collection by searching for your address here or on the map below.
