Collection Estimates

Estimates updated on 09/18/2017. Collection maps below are updated daily during collection periods.

For the week of September 18, west side crews will begin the week by finishing collection within the Wednesday refuse collection district. If you live within this collection district, please consult the maps below prior to setting your brush to the curb. If you place material to the curb shortly after crews have completed collection for this round, it will sit on the terrace until crews rotate back for the next one.

Also during the week of September 18, west side crews may be able to service the Thursday and Friday districts. If you live within these districts, you may want to get your brush to the curb prior to September 18 in order to receive a collection during this round.

The final round of brush collection will begin the week of September 25. Crews will start collecting the final round in the Monday refuse collection district. Residents in the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday districts should aim to have brush set out for collection prior to September 25 to ensure collection for the final round.

Residents within Thursday and Friday districts may have their final official brush collection occur during the week of October 2.

The actual collection time may vary depending on workload, weather conditions, and equipment availability. Use the collection maps at the bottom of this page to learn where crews are working.

Residents can also bring their brush to our drop off site at 1501 W. Badger Rd. or 4141 Nakoosa Trail.

(Please note that drop-off services at 4602 Sycamore Avenue have temporarily moved to 4141 Nakoosa Trail. Drop-off services are expected to return to Sycamore on October 17. Sticker sales and customer service queries remain available from the Streets Division office at 4602 Sycamore.)

REMEMBER:

  • DO NOT PILE BRUSH IN THE STREET.
  • DO NOT BLOCK THE SIDEWALK WITH YOUR BRUSH PILE.
  • DO NOT MIX LEAVES & YARD WASTE WITH THE BRUSH.

HOW TO USE THE COLLECTION MAPS

If you would like to minimize the amount of time your brush pile is at the curb please follow the below guidelines.

First, click on the below map for your refuse collection day.

If the collection area map is color-coded for Next that means your area will soon be serviced by the Streets Division and you should place your material to the curb. We cannot guarantee a specific day as to when the collection will occur. Generally speaking, if your area is marked Next, it would be reasonable to expect your material to be collected within one to two weeks (barring any unforeseen circumstances such as extreme weather).

If the collection area map is color-coded for Current that means your district is presently being serviced by Streets Division crews. It is not advisable to set out material if your area is marked as Current. These maps are updated after the end of the collection crews' shift at 3pm. If you place material to the curb when your area is Current, it is possible that crews will have worked through your neighborhood before you will able to get the material to the curb, and before the maps were updated to reflect the crews progress. This means you will need to wait until the next collection round.

If the collection area map is color-coded for Round Complete that means your area has been collected for this round and crews will rotate back to your neighborhood again. Please continue monitoring the progress of the maps to learn when to set the material to the curb. Material set to the curb when the area is marked Round Complete will sit on the terrace for multiple weeks until crews can rotate to that neighborhood again.

If the collection area map is color-coded for Season Over that means the collection window for this material has ended for the season. You should not place this material to the curb. Material set to the curb when the area is marked Season Over will sit on the terrace until collection of this material resumes, which will likely be in several months.
