Brush Pickup

CLICK HERE FOR THE CITY'S BRUSH PICKUP SCHEDULE

There is a citywide brush pick up twice per year. All residents must have any brush to be picked up properly placed out along the edge of the road prior to City crews servicing their neighborhood.  In order to maintain efficient operations, crews will not be dispatched back to a neighborhood to collect brush piles that were not out in time for the initial collection. To ensure collection of their brush, residents will need to have their brush properly placed prior the to the start date for the spring and fall collections.

Properly placed brush shall consist of woody vegetative material less than 24 inches in diameter and no more than eight (8) feet in length. This can include brush, tree limbs, and tree trunks that are cut as required to meet the dimensional requirements indicated above. A partial list of materials that are not acceptable and will not be picked up includes: grass clippings, leaves, yard and garden debris, dirt, rocks, root balls, scrap wood, sawn lumber, plywood, building materials, bricks, concrete, garbage, and recyclables.

Brush shall be piled off the edge of the road with the butt ends facing the roadside.

Volunteers Needed for Brush Drop-off Site

The City remains in need of additional volunteers to help support the operation of the brush drop-off site.    

The current brush drop-off site, located near the 200 block of North Cushing Park Road, opened in September of 2006 and was intended to be staffed exclusively by volunteers.   Residents that utilize the brush drop-off site are strongly encouraged to show their support of this service by volunteering for at least a shift per year.  Volunteers are needed to make this program a success.  The City sincerely thanks those people who have stepped up and volunteered in the past to make this program successful.

If you are interested in meeting new people, sharing in conversation and ensuring that that City’s brush collection site is operated in an environmentally responsible manner, then this is the volunteer opportunity for you.  The duties would include unlocking the gate to open the facility, checking identification and requiring sign-in, monitoring the material being dropped off and locking up at closing time.  The City will provide brief orientation training for this position.   Whether you would be available to work once a month or once a year, your contribution would be greatly appreciated.   

If you are interested in participating in this volunteer opportunity, please contact Paul Zellner, Public Works Foreman, at pzellner@ci.delafield.wi.us or (262) 303-4627.  Be sure to include your name, address, daytime telephone number, email address and a brief message indicating your interest in this volunteer opportunity and details regarding your availability.  

Thank you for considering this opportunity to share your time, energy and talents.
