Spring clean up starts approximately the first full week in April, weather permitting.
The first two weeks of spring cleanup will be for BRUSH ONLY. We pick up one week on the south side working from east to west and one week on the north side working from east to west.
The second two weeks of spring cleanup will be for YARD WASTE. We pick up one week on the south side working from east to west and one week on the north side working from east to west.
Debris can be put out on the terrace (between the sidewalk and curb) only two weeks prior to the scheduled start date of the brush or yard waste pick up week (south or north).
Spring cleanup consists of a brush pickup (first two weeks in April, weather permitting) and a yard waste pickup (second two weeks in April, weather permitting).
Brush: consists of clean woody vegetative material.
Yard Waste: consists of leaves, thatch, yard and garden waste
Pickup is limited to one (1) truckload per property.
There is a Spring Cleanup parking ban ordinance in place.
No parking will be allowed near garden waste, brush, and/or leaf and raking poles on City street during the scheduled week of pickup from 7 am - 3 pm.
Vehicles parked near any debris piles will be ticketed.
To insure pickup, all material must be placed on the terrace (between the sidewalk and curb) by 7 am on the specified Monday of your scheduled week.
Brush must be less than five (5) feet in length and six (6) inches in diameter and bushes/shrubs without root bulbs.
The City will not pick up any of the following items: mixed materials (brush/yard waste), bagged materials, lumber, garbage, animal droppings, broken concrete, refuse, fill, demolition material, edgings, yard debris greater than six (6) inches or longer than five (5) feet in length, including stumps, roots, or shrubs with intact bulbs, or debris in bags, buckets or garbage cans.
If the pickup date was missed and/or debris was put out after City crews went through, the property owner would be responsible for removing the debris and disposing of it themselves. If debris is not removed, there will be a minimum $100 charge for material picked up after the initial pickup on your street.
City residents that choose not to utilize the City pickup or wish to have additional pickups may contact a private hauler or take brush/yard debris to the county compost sites. For more information about the compost sites, call 920-683-4333.
City crews will pick up on each street one time only for brush and one time only for yard waste.
