Set-Out Dates for Brush Collection Now Available

March 25, 2022 5:21 PM

Collection will begin the week of April 3, 2022 for certain neighborhoods

The Streets Division's brush collection will begin soon.

Learn when to set out your brush for pickup by visiting the Streets Division website,

Once on the page, enter your address into the form to learn the set-out dates for your home.

By placing brush collection out for pickup on the dates on the website, you will not miss your collection opportunities.

For certain neighborhoods, collection for brush will begin the week of April 3, 2022.

What is considered "brush"?
Brush is woody material that you have trimmed from your trees, shrubs, and bushes.

Brush must be at least 18 inches in length so it can be safely fed into wood chippers. And brush should be shorter than 8 feet in length.

Brush collection crews will not pick up yard waste piles.

Crews will not collect brush cut by a contractor.

How do you set out brush for collection?
Place your brush at the street edge or on the terrace. Do not let the brush dangle into the street or block the sidewalk.

Pile the material neatly with cut ends all facing the same direction.

Do not mix brush with yard waste.

Keep the material at least four feet from obstructions where possible. Obstructions like street signs, utility poles, mailboxes, trees, and parked cars interfere with collection.

How many collection opportunities will there be?
Madison residents will get five brush collection opportunities.

Currently, the website does not show all five set-out date opportunities. All five dates will be visible soon.

Why are all the set-out dates on the website Sunday?
During the regular work week following the set-out date, crews will be circling through neighborhoods that have that set-out date.

By placing brush out on the date given on the website, your material will be out on time and will only sit on the terrace for one week at most.

Drop-off Site Information
The Streets Division drop-off sites will also accept brush.

However, they are going through many changes this year.

Be sure you know the hours and locations of the sites before loading your vehicle.

Verify the information for the site you want to use at
