Special Brush Pick Up Scheduled

August 10, 2023

DPS to Conduct Brush Only Pick Up Due to Storm Damage

City residents should be aware that the City’s Department of Public Services (DPS) will conduct a special brush pick up in response to the August 3, 2023 storm that resulted in downed trees and branches throughout the City. The special pick up is for brush resulting from the storm only. Leaves and yard waste will not be picked up.

As the City completes an assessment and maintenance of downed trees on public land, parks, and within the right of way, the special brush pick up will begin on Monday, August 14, 2023. All brush should be placed no later than August 13, 2023. Two crews (DPS Parks and Streets Divisions) will work from both the east and west side of the City and make one pass only. Brush may be placed in the alley or tree lawn, behind the curb or pavement edge of the street.

We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Please feel free to contact Michelle Hunt at (231) 922-4900 if you have any questions, comments or concerns about the work or the schedule.
