The Bulk Brush Curbside Pickup date has changed to MAY 20

As in past years, PNA has coordinated with the City of Lawrence Parks and Rec department to bring the City’s chipper/shredder crew to the neighborhood to pick up and recycle bulk brush. After the PNA Newsletter went to press, the City asked that we change the date from the week of May 6 to the week of May 20 because of other commitments the City crews face early in May. Please pass the word to your neighbors that the date has changed. Here’s the updated information about the bulk brush pickup services.

After a long, snowy winter, it’s finally spring and time for yard clean-up! To help dispose of your trimmed brush and tree limbs, we’ve again scheduled a special tour through the neighborhood on May 20th 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 Pat Miller (550-6958) 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 May 20th.
