Brush Pick-up

Brush pick-up is on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. Brush needs to be tied in bundles no longer than 6 feet and weighing less than 50 lbs. Only brush will be picked up - entire trees will not be picked up and is the responsibility of the homeowner to dispose of. Leaves need to be put in clear bags so the workers can clearly see the bags are leaves and not garbage. This is being done because the Village doesn't want to lose their privileges at the Town Dump, so please make sure to follow these rules and if you have any questions please feel free to contact the Village office.
