See below for our cleanup guidelines to make sure that brush and trash are put out at the curb correctly.
Brush Cleanup Guidelines
When discarding brush and other items please make two separate piles. One for brush and one for everything else. Brush is recycled at a different facility and turned into mulch. No trash or treated wood (fencematerials, lumber, trash bags or loose trash) can be in the brush pile.
Brush piles must have 5 feet of clearance on all sides and free from obstructions 15 feet tall (power lines and trees). Do not place brush piles within 5 feet of mail boxes, poles, trees, parked cars, or the bulk trash pile. The brush pile may not exceed 15 feet in length. Failure to follow the guidelines will result in the resident being responsible for the removal.
Brush piles with bulk trash mixed in will be skipped and will be the resident’s responsibility to remove.
