Collection Estimates for the week of August 22

For more current information, use the collection maps as directed below.

The 2016 collection season is rapidly coming to a close. Be sure to perform your brush trimming soon so you do not miss out on the 2016 collection season.

West side crews will begin the week of August 22 within the Tuesday refuse collection area. There are very few areas yet to be collected in the Tuesday area during this round, so please consult the maps below to see if crews have serviced your neighborhood before setting your brush curbside. Brush set out shortly after crews have completed an area will sit on the terrace until crews can rotate back to the neighborhood, which will take several weeks.

If you live within the Wednesday and Thursday refuse collection areas, it is recommended that you get your brush to the curb prior to August 22. Crews may be able to service both areas by the week's end.

During the week of August 29, crews may service the Friday and Monday areas, and then loop back to the Tuesday and Wednesday areas the week of September 5.

These estimates are based upon the best available information at the time of the update. Actual collection times are dependent upon workload, weather conditions, and equipment availability. These estimates are updated weekly. For more current information, check the maps below because they are updated daily during our collection periods.

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

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

To minimize the amount of time your brush pile is at the curb, click on the below map for the refuse collection area a day ahead of your own collection day. For example, if you have a Wednesday refuse collection day, you should click on the map for the Tuesday Refuse Collection area.

When the map for the refuse collection area the day before yours is colored blue, that means crews are currently collecting from that area. When crews finish that area, they will move on to your neighborhood. And you should have your brush out before crews get to your neighborhood, otherwise it could be set out late and not picked for weeks.

Therefore, when the map for the refuse collection area ahead of yours is blue, you should get your brush curb side. This method ensures your brush is ready prior to crews arriving in your neighborhood. It will shorten the amount of time the pile is on the terrace. And it ensures that you will not miss the crews and need to wait several weeks for the next collection.

The numbers on the map correspond to an internal numbering scheme for assigning zones to crews. They are not dates and can be ignored.

The areas of the map that are shaded blue are the ones currently receiving collection. You can track our progress by clicking through the maps and finding the ones with areas shaded blue. Maps are updated at the end of the work day and do not update automatically when crews finish an area.
