2015 Spring Brush Pickup
2015 SPRING BRUSH PICKUP
The City of Northwood Street Department will conduct a SPRING BRUSH PICKUP resulting from routine yard maintenance or tree trimming done by the homeowner. The program is not intended as a means for homeowners to dispose of entire trees.
Brush needs to be placed curbside or edge of roadway by 7 a.m. on Monday, April 27th at 7:00 A.M. and no earlier than ten (10) days prior to the 27th . The City will not return for brush put out late or placed in alleys. Each home may put out only one pile of brush no larger than four feet tall and 15 feet long. Brush should be neatly stacked with cut ends facing toward the street. Brush that is piled in a tangled mess severely reduces the crew’s ability to complete its scheduled route and it will not be picked up. The largest branches should not exceed 4" in diameter. Do not tie or bundle.
Small clippings, hedge trimmings and twigs will not be placed in the city’s mulcher. They should be put in garbage cans for refuse pickup. The spring brush pickup is not a yard waste or large item pickup. Do not mix sod, solid waste, concrete, metal or other building materials with brush. It will damage the wood chipper used to grind brush. Plastic bags are prohibited because they can damage the chipper.
The City reserves the right to refuse pick up for those properties not complying with the above guidelines. When the guidelines are not met, the Director of Public Service will notify the resident/property owner that he/she is responsible for removal.
