Large Brush Collection

Large Brush Collection will begin April 12, 2010 for the Westcreek Neighborhood. Branches over 3 inches in diameter and up to 15 feet long are collected during specially-scheduled large brush collections. Large brush must be at the curb in front of your house by 6:30 a.m. on the first day of the scheduled collection week(s).

Large brush should be stacked, unbound, in one row along the curb with the cut ends facing the street. The row should be no more than 15 feet long and four feet high. Anything beyond this amount will not be collected unless you have made prior arrangements to pay additional fees.

Large brush will not be collected if it’s inaccessible. Place your large brush about five feet from your garbage cart and other potential obstacles such as mail boxes, fences, walls, water meters, telephone connection boxes and parked cars. Avoid placing large brush under low-hanging tree limbs or power lines.

Solid Waste Services cannot collect the following items during large brush collections:

– Bamboo, cactus, vines, rose bushes or vegetation with thorns. (These can be included with your weekly yard trimmings collection. Cactus, rose bushes and thorny branches should be wrapped in cardboard or several layers of newspaper before being placed in a reusable container or paper yard waste bag on your yard trimmings collection day.)
– Yard trimmings (grass, leaves and small branches)
– Garbage
– Bulky items
