Brush & Branch Collection
Branches & Brush (Four Feet or Less in Length) - Weekly Trash Collection Day
Branches or brush four feet or less in length should be disposed of on your regular trash collection day. The material should be tied into bundles of fifty pounds or less and up to five bundles per week may be placed out for disposal. Branches or brush may also be cut up and disposed of in paper compost bags or trash cans marked with a yard waste sticker.
Yard waste in bundles, bags or cans is collected the last week of March through the second week of December. Please see the Yard Waste page for more details.
Chipper Service (Over Four Feet in Length)
Chipper Service runs the first week of April through the first week of October. Branches and limbs longer than four feet in length, up to four inches in diameter should be stacked with all of the cut ends in one direction for forestry chipper service. Stumps, logs, vines, or roots cannot be placed out for disposal.
Through Memorial Weekend
Chipper service for brush and branch disposal has resumed for the 2023 season early due to the sheer volume of damaged trees from the latest storms. Through Memorial Weekend chipper crews automatically circulate through each residential neighborhood approximately every fifteen working days.
Memorial Weekend Through Beginning of October Service
On the Tuesday following Memorial Day and through the first Friday of October service is on a request only basis.
