Final brush collection begins Nov. 28

The final curbside residential brush collection for the season is scheduled to begin on Mon., Nov. 28, for both sides of town. The city’s contractor will go past each residence one time during the week, beginning on Monday. Residents who generate brush after the final collection has been completed will need to store the brush someplace other than the parkway until the program resumes next spring or they may contact a private service to have it removed at the resident’s expense. It is anticipated that this final collection will be completed by the end of the week of Nov. 28, weather permitting.

If yard waste items are mixed with your brush pile (twigs are permitted) it will not be collected. Advanced Disposal will collect yard waste bags/containers with leaves, twigs, evergreen clippings, roots, stumps, ornamental grasses, and plants on your regular trash collection day, through Nov. 30. Maximum weight for yard waste is 50 pounds per bag/container; a refuse sticker should be attached to each bag/container. Yard waste containers should be clearly labeled “YARD WASTE” with the label facing towards the street. Please see the article on the leaf collection program for information about leaf disposal.

If you have any questions, please call the street division at 630-454-2400 weekdays from 7am–4pm or visit the website at
