When: Please have brush placed at the curb by 7:00 A.M. Monday morning to ensure pick-up. Brush pick-up will take place the last full week of every month from April-October. (We will only make one pass by your house each month. Please make sure that parked cars are not directly in front of the pile, or parked within 20 feet of the pile in either direction. This will result in your brush pile being left behind until the following month.)
If you are in the unincorporated country areas of Oswego Township, please call us at the Road District to let us know you will need brush picked up.
How: Laid as neatly as possible with the cut ends toward the street and parallel to each other. Please keep your brush piles out of the street and gutter. During inclement weather, this can clog the storm drain covers and will cause flooding.
What is acceptable: Limbs over two feet long and no larger than 5 inches in diameter. The brush program is for the trimming and pruning of trees, not for the removal of whole trees from the property. Tied bundles with twine only, no metal wire.
What is not acceptable: Short clippings, root balls, bags of branches, or bushes. Please do not place thorny tree branches inside piles. Place these branches next to the larger pile and our crews will take special care with them. We would appreciate keeping brush piles to a minimum, maximum pile size is 3′ H x 12′ L. Failure to comply with this could result in your whole brush pile or a portion of it being left behind
