& LEAF REMOVAL
2013 Brush Pickup Schedule
Brush will be picked up Monday through Friday during the last full
week of each month; April through October.
Brush removal is a public service that is provided to residents at
no additional fee. Brush will be picked up Monday through Friday
during the last full week of every month. Brush
must be placed at the curb on Monday of brush week, NO LATER THAN
7:00 a.m. Due to the
volume of brush, crews may not be able to go back to your street if
you put it out after they go through.
Brush pick-up is designed to handle typical residential type yard
trimmings. It is not designed to pick up excessive amounts of tree
trimmings left by tree services performing residential trimming or
lot clearing. Likewise, brush removal is not to be utilized for
whole tree removal.
All limbs, vines, and brush smaller than one (1) inch in diameter,
must be tied with string in bundles not to exceed one (1) foot in
diameter or six (6) feet in length. Anything with thorns must also
be in bundles. The reason for this is to allow passage and handling
of smaller brush through chipper opening. Do not tie the bundles
with wire or electric cord as this will damage chipper and blades.
All limbs should be neatly stacked at the curb with all cut ends
facing the street. Limbs should be left as long as possible. Your
cooperation is greatly appreciated.
To allow chipper blades to grab limbs without side branches getting
caught, large limbs should have side branches removed four (4) feet
back from the cut end of limbs so the branches can reach the

Crews only perform leaf pickup in the Fall,
during the month of November.
Crews will only pick up bagged leaves; paper or
plastic bags preferred. To conserve space, please mulch the leaves
prior to bagging them if possible. The bags should be securely tied
and placed in the grass berm in front of your residence. Please DO
NOT include grass clippings, twigs, rocks, etc. in the bags.
Bags of leaves should be placed out at the
street on the same day you typically place your trash out for
curbside pick-up. Your trash haulers may pick up some of the bagged
leaves depending on your service provider. The Township crews will
be around the day following your normal trash service to pick up any
bagged leaves that were not taken. Depending on weather and the
volume of bags placed for pick up, exact leaf pick up days may
vary. For additional information, please contact: Jim Houston,
Deerfield Township Road Superintendent at 513-583-4793.
