May 2nd and 3rd Scheduled for Brush Pick Up

April 15, 2019

Brush Pick Up May 2nd and 3rd

The Village Public Works Department is scheduling May 2nd & 3rd as days for collecting resident landscape tree materials.  Village Staff will be out with the truck and chipper collecting branches left in piles on the front curb of residents’ properties.  This program is intended for larger tree branches resulting from trimming or storm damage and is not for the disposal of whole trees.  No stumps or roots will be taken.  All brush must be a minimum of four feet in length and between two to eight inches in diameter.  Small or thin branches can cause the chipper to jam and creates a safety hazard.  Please be aware that branches will be left behind if they cannot be put through the chipper safely.  All other waste (leaves, clippings, small branches, etc…)  placed in accceptable stickered containers will be picked up by Groot.  This service is for yard maintenance and not for clearing lots.  Any other items placed in the brush piles that could cause serious damgage to the chipper and would be a hazard to machine operators will be left behind.  Thank you for your cooperation so we can continue to offer this service.
