Brush Pickup

It is important that residents in unincorporated areas follow these guidelines to ensure proper collection of brush.

Brush Pickup Program
This program is for disposal of tree prunings. Arborists reccommend pruning in the Spring and Fall. Summer pruning creates stress on the tree and weakens the tree's natural immunity to insects, disease and drought.

Reminders
If you hire a landscaper to prune your trees, please inform them of program rules as well. You are legally responsible for following the program rules.

If you are having a tree removed from your property, you are legally responsible for disposing of the tree. This program is NOT for tree removal.

Please do NOT place brush piles on vacant lots, or create "neighborhood" or "block" piles. Our contractor is prohibited from collecting at vacant lots and oversized piles.

Contact your waste collector to dispose of excess brush or items we don't collect (see below). Some companies include brush collection in their "pay one price" service, so you may already be paying for this service.
