We are moving the March loose brush pickup to this week given the large amount of brush down (again) after last Friday’s snow event. This means that loose brush will be picked up this week, the week of March 6. There will not be a loose brush pickup on March 21. Our next scheduled loose brush pickup after this week will be April 18.
Brush must be placed out at the curb by 8 am on Wednesday morning, we cannot guarantee that brush placed out after that time will be collected. If brush is placed out by the curb after your street has been collected, Brilar will not come back. If your brush is out at the curb by Wednesday morning it will get picked up, although it may take more than one day for Brilar to complete their collection. We do complete an inventory of all brush at the curb on Wednesday morning, so we will know what brush was out on time and needs to be collected.
To the best of your ability, keep branches smaller than 4 inches in diameter between 4 and 10 feet in length. Brush between 4 and 8 inches in diameter must be cut into not more than 4 foot lengths. Branches larger than 8 inches in diameter can not be picked up with loose brush. Nothing with a root ball will be taken as part of loose brush.
Twigs and small debris is not appropriate for loose brush. That material should be placed in a yard compost bag for pickup starting on April 3.
