Annaul Curbside Bulk Brush Pick-up – Monday April 30th

Yes, it’s that time of year again – springtime yard clean-up!  To help dispose of your trimmed brush and tree limbs, we’ve scheduled a special tour through the neighborhood on April 30th for the Lawrence Parks Department’s wood chipper / shredder.  The city crew will pick-up and process brush and oversize yard debris you leave at the curb.  Brush does not need to be bundled, and limbs should have their butt-end facing the street.  This is for brush and limbs only, since other yard waste is routinely picked up by sanitation crews each Monday.  The brush and limbs will be chipped up to add to the city’s compost and mulch piles.  The city is not able to dispose of railroad ties and other wood fencing materials.  Also note that city staff is not allowed to go into private yards to clean up or retrieve the debris.

If you need assistance in bringing your debris to the curb, please call Linda Bush (856-6435) or send an email to to arrange assistance from some helpful neighbors.  Although it may take a couple of days for the crew to work its way through the neighborhood, please have your brush ready at the curb by the morning of Monday April 30th.
