Do not tie bundles of brush with rope or wire and do not pile higher than 4 feet.

Branches must be put on the parkway, in front of your house or along the frontage where refuse/recycling is collected

Don't park in front of the piles; crews will be unable to pick up the brush

Tree trunks/stumps: If you take down a whole tree, please be aware that the maximum size that the crew has the ability to pick up is 12” in diameter by 12’ long.  Anything larger or longer would need to be cut up or split before pick-up.
