Brush piles no larger than eight (8) feet long and six (6) feet deep will be picked up at no charge on your garbage day during the scheduled brush pick-up weeks.
Brush is defined by the Village as:
Trimmings/woody material from shrubs, trees, and stalks from garden plants (e.g., rosebush and bamboo). Brush does not include tree roots or root balls, yard waste, leaves, or grass.
Steps to ensure pick up during Brush Week:
|-||Only place brush, as defined by the Village, out for collection.|
|-||Place brush parallel to and behind the curb. Do not place anything in the street.|
|-||Keep brush piles within the required size parameters (no larger than 8 ft. long x 6 ft. deep).|
|-||Place brush four (4) feet away from any fixed structure (mailbox, trees, cars, utility poles, etc.).|
|-||Brush must be out for collection by 6:00 a.m. on your garbage day, but no sooner than 6:00 p.m. the day before.|
|-||The Village will not collect brush created by a contracted service.|
Correct Brush Placement:
Any brush placed on the curb during a non-pick up week will be tagged with a forty-eight (48) hour notice to remove. If the items are not removed, the Village will pick up and bill the property owner for collection and disposal at a minimum cost of $200.00.
A patron may request brush pick-up during a non-collection week. The minimum pick-up charge during a non-collection week is $200.00. If the amount exceeds the volume of the Village haul truck, there will be a $200.00 charge for each additional truck load. Any unpaid charges will be placed on the real estate tax bill as a special charge. Contact Village Hall at 920-448-2800 to schedule a pick-up during a non-collection week.
Christmas Tree Collection and Exchange:
Christmas trees placed at the curb will be collected on your garbage day during January’s brush pick-up week.
Christmas Tree Exchange Program: Residents can drop their Christmas tree off at Lebrun Yard Waste Site the 1st and 2nd Saturday in January from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in exchange for a coupon. In spring, the coupon can be exchanged for a tree seedling which can be picked up at Village Hall.
