Curbside Brush Collection

The Village of Ashwaubenon Public Works Department completes a continuous collection rotation of brush pick-up through the Village during the spring, summer and fall months. The collection progresses from the north end of the Village and cycles through to the south end of the Village generally in a 3-week timeframe.

Brush Pickup Guidelines

In order for the Village to provide timely and efficient collection of brush, a number of guidelines and illustrations are provided below to help property owners correctly place brush for this service:

  • Brush collection is meant for residential tree/brush trimming completed by Village residents. If a contractor is hired to complete tree/brush removal, the contractor must cut, chip, remove and dispose of all material. Please contact Brown County Port & Resource Recovery at 920.492.4950 for details of the program.
  • Brush must be placed at the edge of the roadway or curbline with the cut sections facing the street and all limbs facing the same direction. Limbs cannot exceed 6” in diameter at the cut section and must be trimmed down to a maximum length of 15’.
  • Do not place brush in the roadway, curbline, ditches or on sidewalks. Keep all brush away from fire hydrants, electrical poles, low hanging wires, fences, mailboxes or other objects in the yard.
  • Do not mix brush with other yard waste (grass clippings, leaves, garden waste, paper/plastic, etc.) nor put in garbage cans or bags.
  • Roots/stumps/large trunk sections cannot be picked up but Village residents can bring these items to the Village Yard Waste Site located on Collaer Court.

Brush set out to the street that is not following the above guidelines will not be collected by the Village as part of its brush collection program and will be subject to enforcement action under Municipal Code Section 18-2-33.

Brush Pick-Up Reminders

A friendly reminder regarding residential curbside brush pick-up:
With respect to the volume of brush put out to the curb, any resident completing some tree trimming or removal themselves can put those trimmings out for pick-up. If a resident hires a contractor to complete large scale trimming or tree removals, the limbs, logs and associated trimmings are to be taken away by that contractor. This is especially important to note as we head into a period of time where Emerald Ash Borer impacts trees and there will be numerous tree removals in the coming years. The curbside brush pick-up is meant for trimmings and not full-scale tree removals. By everyone following this guidance, we will be able to provide curbside brush pick-up in a timely manner for all residents.
When bringing brush out to the curb, please place the limbs with the cut section facing the street and all limbs facing the same direction. Again, this allows us to remove your branches quicker and allows us to service more residents through the course of a day.
Thank you very much for your help as by following these couple reminders, it’ll help us get your brush removed quicker. As always, please visit the Village of Ashwaubenon website if you have any questions or call us at 920.492.2310.
