Tie brush in bundles that are no longer than 3 feet in length and 3 feet in diameter and set out next to your garbage by 5 am on your scheduled garbage pickup day. Yard waste trucks can pick up properly bundled limbs throughout the year.
For large amounts of brush that cannot be tied and you do not have a way to haul it to the compost site, contact Public Works at 563.263.8933 to schedule a brush pickup. Normally, the backhoe is dispatched on Fridays to pick up brush (at no cost to residents). This service is provided throughout the year, as long as we have equipment and manpower available.
