Collection Estimates for the week of May 23 (for more current information use the collection maps as directed below)

East side crews will begin the week by finishing the last few sectors of the Thursday refuse collection area. If you are within the Thursday collection area, please consult the maps prior to setting your brush out to be sure your area hasn't been serviced before setting your material out. Brush set out shortly after crews have collected from an area will sit at the curb until crews can rotate back to that neighborhood, and that can take several weeks.

If you live within the Friday refuse collection area, you should get your material to the curb before the week of May 23. Crews will likely service this area by the week's end. Crews may also service the Monday refuse collection area by the week's end. It is advisable for residents in the Monday area to get their brush out prior to May 23 as well, but please note that crews may not actually get to this neighborhood until the week of Memorial Day, May 30.

The Tuesday refuse collection area may be serviced during the week of May 30 and crews will then cycle back to the Wednesday and Thursday areas possibly during the week of June 6.

These estimates are based upon the best available information at the time the update was published. Actual collection times are dependent upon workload, weather conditions, and equipment availability. For more current information, use the maps below. The maps are updated daily during collection periods.

East Side Residents can also bring their brush to the drop off site at 4602 Sycamore Avenue.

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 then be in 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.
