[ARCHIVED] NEW Brush Pickup Policy

new policy

The City will now be divided into 2 areas for brush pickup. Area #1 will be east of the Grand River and south of Grand River Ave (the east side), area #2 will be the rest of the city. Brush will be picked up curb side on the first and third Monday of the month for area #1, and area #2 will be picked up on the second and fourth Monday of each month.  

Brush needs to be neatly stacked with ends facing the same direction that are no longer than 8’ in length (brush piles) and no branches should be larger than 6’’ in diameter. Small branches and twigs shorter than 2’ should be bound together, placed in paper biodegradable bags, or containers that will be returned to your yard. Stumps and root balls will not be picked up. Please do not place brush behind or close to signs, fire hydrants, trees, etc. This service is for maintenance not lot clearing and is available for residents. It is not for contractor use. 

Brush may be placed curbside between the Friday before pick up and 7:00 A.M. on pick up day. Brush should be placed in your curb lawn and not placed in the roadway pursuant to City Ordinance. The D.P.W. will accept self-haul brush Monday through Friday 7:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. These services are for residents of The City of Portland only.
