Brush Pick Up

The DPW provides routine brush pickup services throughout the year. Brush is picked up on the first Friday of the month (weather permitting) . Any brush to be picked up must be called into the DPW office at (586) 293-2001 before 3:30 p.m. before the first Thursday of each month. Any calls after 3:30 p.m. on that Thursday will be held for pickup on the Friday of the following month. Because of the large amount of calls received, pickups that are not called in will not be picked up.

Effective July 1, 2022 there will be a $138 fee for brush pickup per half hour.

The following guidelines should be followed when preparing brush for pickup: Pile brush to be picked up neatly at curbside, with the butts of the limbs facing the street.

  • Refrain from mixing in any other rubbish, vines, thorns, or bushes in the pile.
  • Smaller bush trimmings that cannot be tied into bundles must be cut and placed in brown paper compost bag, and placed at curbside on your regular pickup day for composting.
  • All bushes removed from the ground must have the roots removed. Stumps will not be picked up by the DPW. It is the homeowners' responsibility to see to their disposal.
  • Branches cannot be more than 6 feet long and 3 inches in diameter
