Brush pick up is provided as a free service to our residents who are cleaning up the yard around their homes. Brush is picked up on Monday.
Please follow these rules:
Brush cannot be larger than 4” in diameter or longer than 4’ long and must be in manageable bundles.
No yard waste. (Grass clippings, sod, leaves etc.). No plastic bags.
Do not blow grass clippings into street. This washes into the catch basins and causes them to clog.
No thorns, briars, or poison ivy in bundles.
We will not pick up trimmings done by a private contractor. They are required to haul away their own debris.
Do not place brush in the street. Please place on the grass between the street and sidewalk. The debris could clog our storm sewers if it is placed in the street.
No trash. (Building materials, fence post, shingles etc).
No stumps or bushes with root balls
No Wheelbarrows or containers with debris.
Any piles not adhering to the rules will be rejected and will not be reconsidered for pick up.
Per Ordinance 16-06 Prohibiting disposal of leaves and other waste matter into storm sewers within the Village:
Residents will be warned for disposing grass clippings into the gutters while mowing and any other violations will be documented and can be charged with a minor misdemeanor for each day of non-compliance.
