Large Brush Items
The city has several brush dumpsters available to residents upon request. These dumpsters accommodate quantities of brush and limbs too large for the call-in pick up program. Under this program, the city will deliver a roll-off dumpster into which the resident may load limbs and other brush for disposal by the city.
This program is intended to provide residents an option for normal trimmings and storm damage disposal. Residents contracting with professional tree trimming and removal services should include disposal in their contract since the City is unable to accommodate major disposal needs.
This service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to offer this service, the city asks residents to observe the following guidelines and procedures:
Schedule a Date
Call Public Works (867-4200) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday to schedule. Available dates are generally scheduled far in advance - so be sure to plan ahead.
Dump boxes will not be delivered, picked up or dumped on Saturdays, Sundays or scheduled holidays. The use of a dump box is limited to two consecutive days, and up to two occasions per year, per household. The city will only dump debris boxes once per day.
A dump box will be delivered on the scheduled date between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., and pick up will be on the scheduled date between 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. The dump box will be placed on your driveway for you to load. It is best to cut limbs to no more than 4 feet in length so that they will fit in the box. Overhanging loads are not permitted. The dimensions of the box are: 8-feet wide, 10-feet long and 42-inches deep.
Include Only Biodegradable Plant Materials
No building materials, plastic bags or trash will be accepted. Grass clippings are also prohibited. The resident will be charged if a load is contaminated with trash or other unacceptable materials. Charges will include, but are not limited to, any disposal fees for load separation, and/or labor time and equipment required by city personnel.
Violation of these guidelines will result in the termination of the service, and the resident will be responsible for removal and disposal of debris. A resident who combines items other than yard waste will not be permitted to participate in the program in the future.
