Branch Pickup

Regular Citywide Branch Collection

The Office of Public Works will begin city-wide residential branch pickup for spring on Monday, May 8. Branch pickup is shifting to one spring collection and one fall collection. Public Works crews will move through the city over the next several weeks and residents are encouraged to check this page to determine the approximate time that branches will be collected in their neighborhoods. In addition, the State Journal Register’s Sunday edition will print the locations where city crews will be picking up branches in the coming week. Residential branch pickup is shifting to one spring pickup and after completion the next curbside collection will begin the week of October 16. Additional information about this pickup will be announced in the fall.
