Leaf Pick-Up

Place un-bagged leaves street-side by 7:00 a.m. on each Monday of your scheduled week. Items such as garden trash, lake leaves, boards, sticks, rocks, and other items that would prevent the leaf vacuum from easily sucking up leaves cannot be placed in the leaf piles. Due to safety concerns, leaves are prohibited from being placed in the street. Do not rake leaves into the ditch. All leaves must be placed on the street edge and reachable by the City leaf vacuum. Bagged leaves will not be removed.

Brush Pick-Up

Brush Pick-up Program will be the week of April 15th, 2024.

Each spring and fall the City sponsors a street-side brush pick-up program. The purpose of this program is to remove brush that is too large to be removed as part of the weekly yard waste-composting program.

The brush is required to be placed by the curbside, neatly stacked, with the large ends towards the street. Brush up to 8″ in diameter is accepted. Shrubs with roots still attached are not accepted. The City asks that you leave Brush in as large of pieces as possible so that it can be safely fed into the brush chipper by City employees.

All brush must be curbside before 7:00 A.M. that Monday of pick-up. Streets are covered one time only.
