Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Curbside brush collection will begin April 6.

Use the Pickup Schedule map to learn when to set brush out for pickup.

Residents should anticipate slower collection service than in years past.

Collection depends on staff availability. In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Streets Division will adjust crew responsibilities to ensure critical operations like trash and recycling collection continue uninterrupted. Crews may need to be reassigned from brush pickup to perform crucial services, resulting in delays.

Follow the brush collection rules to ensure an efficient and safe collection.
