Oswego Brush Pick-Up Service Begins This Week

Apr 06, 2015 01:04PM, Published by Steven Jack, Categories: Today, Community, News




The Village will implement brush collection by zones this year.  There will be two zones.  Zone A includes all properties north of US 34.  Zone B includes all properties south of US 34.  We will collect brush from each zone once each month beginning in April.  The last pickup will be in October just prior to the start of the leaf collection program.  The Map is available HERE. Collection weeks are as follows:

 Zone A 

  • April 6-10
  • May 4-8
  • June 1-5
  • July 6-10
  • August 3-7
  • August 31 – September 4
  • October 5-9

Zone B

  • April 13-17
  • May 11-15
  • June 8-12
  • July 13-17
  • August 10-14
  • September 7-11
  • October 12-16

 
Place all brush at the curb by 7 a.m. on Monday morning of the designated week but no earlier than noon the Friday before.

The Public Works trucks will pass through an area once and will not return for brush placed after the deadline.

Brush is defined as tree and bush branches that are less than 5” in diameter.   Place unbundled brush parallel or perpendicular to the street in neat bundles with all cut ends facing the same direction.  Do not put brush in a container or in the street.  

We will not pick up logs, wood, root balls, cuttings, or grass clippings. Crews will place an orange tag on your door indicating the reason they did not pick up the brush if it is the wrong material or placed at the curb prior to the deadline.

The Village provides this service for residents. Village does not accept landscaping generated by contractors.
