Brush & Leaf Collection

Brush Pickup

Curbside brush collection is available for residents beginning on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. Typically, it takes a couple days to collect the brush from all the sites, especially during the Summer months. Please call the Department of Public Works at (262) 342-1181 by 3 p.m. the Tuesday prior to the collection day to have your address placed on the list. Brush should be placed on the parkway (between the street and sidewalk) or in alleys (where applicable). Sizes are limited to a maximum of 8 feet in length and 8 inches in diameter, preferable stacked in the same direction and must be stacked in the same direction. Piles must be separated if they are larger than 4 foot (high) X 8 foot (long) X 4 foot (wide).

Autumn Leaf Collection

Leaves are collected beginning October 15th and will be picked up until about November 15th. The Department of Public Works crews make every effort to collect leaves from each street several times, weather pending.

Leaf Collection Regulations:

  • Please keep debris, such as flowers, yard and garden waste, pumpkins, plants, branches, etc. out of the leaf piles. They clog the machines and may cause extensive damage. Piles containing debris may not be collected.
  • Leaves should be placed in the street next to the gutter, while leaving the flow line of the curb clear for stormwater to pass.
  • Keep piles away from stormwater drains, sewer grates, mailboxes, signs and parked cars.
  • Do not put plastic bags of leaves in the street.

Yard Waste Disposal

You may take your yard waste, leaves, branches, etc. to the City Compost Site located off of Maryland Avenue April through November. Visit the Compost Site page for specific hours and information.
