Brush Pick Up to End Early November
The first week of November will be the final brush pickup for the year. Brush pick up will resume in the spring. Maintenance personnel pick up brush every other week throughout the year except late fall and winter. Please pile brush roadside for collection. There is no need to call to schedule brush pick up as maintenance personnel make regular collection rounds and do not make special trips for pick up.

Material should be left in or picked up from designated areas as marked including: Raw Wood, Finished Mulch, Chipped Material, and Yard Waste. Please DO NOT leave trees or foreign material in the compost areas. The compost facility is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and inspected without notice.
