Curbside Brush Pickup
The City provides brush pickup to the north side of the city (north of Rock River) on the 1st Tuesday of each month and to the south side (south of Rock River) the 2nd Tuesday of each week of each month. Only brush that is more than 3/4" in diameter at the cut end and more than 3' in length should be placed at the curb for collection. Anything smaller than this will plug the chipper and must be taken to the Compost Site. Brush should be put at the curb and piled neatly with the cut end facing the street.
Yard waste and brush can NO longer be dropped off at the City Garage, 700 James Place
Please contact the Public Works (920) 563-7771 and provide your address prior to the scheduled week of collection.
