Curbside Brush Pickup

Christmas tree pick up by the Village is conducted during the month of January. Typically this is done on Monday's (weather permitting). Please place your trees at the curb and not in the street. Wreaths or Trees with plastic bags, stands, wires or lights will not be picked up. Trees that are frozen into the snow banks will be left until the spring brush pickup.

  • Brush up to 3" in diameter is acceptable in lengths no greater than 12 feet.
  • Brush up to 6" in diameter is acceptable in lengths no greater than 8 feet.
  • Brush greater than 6" in diameter cannot be accepted at the curb. Larger brush including stumps up to 12" in diameter at ground level can be taken to the yard waste site.

Incorrect Placement


  • Please do not put brush at the curb any sooner than one week prior to the collection day.
  • Brush may not be picked up all in one day but it will be picked up the week of. Brush however must be at the curb prior to the Monday that brush is scheduled to be picked up. Brush not at the curb by the time crews come past will be left or will be billed for us to come back at a later date.
  • Lawn wastes (grass, leaves and garden materials) will not be taken. These materials need to be taken to the yard waste site by yourselves.
  • Clearing of brush on lots for the intent to build or sell the lot will not be picked up. The intent of the pickup is to provide for disposal of brush generated as a result of routine yard maintenance. If excessive amounts of brush are placed at the curb, the brush may be refused or a fee will be charged for the work. Entire trees cut down are the homeowners responsibility to remove and cleanup.

The Village currently has no Leaf pickup. Please do not rake your leaves into the curbs. This causes water backups at the storm catch basins, promotes algae growth and is a violation of municipal law.
