Brush, Leaf & Christmas Tree Collection


The collection of curbside brush is the first Tuesday of each month beginning in April going through October. Brush piles should be of manageable size, neatly stacked, and cut to lengths of approximately 4 feet.

Collection of natural Christmas trees deposited at curbside that have had all decorations removed will occur two weeks after Christmas and final pickup in the third week after.

Curbside collection of leaves will occur during an approximate 2-week period each fall. Dates depend upon peak leaf shed. Leaves should be raked to and left on the curb and not raked into the street or gutter. Additional leaves collected after pick-up has ceased can be dropped off at the city composting drop-off site across from City Hall.
