Brush, tree limbs and yard waste will be collected every 3rd Friday of each month April through November (weather permitting). All yard waste should be placed at the curb by 7am on the day of pick-up. These collections are intended to provide a means of disposing of tree, shrub and brush trimmings, not as a mean for disposing of entire trees. Professional and/or hired services used to cut down large amounts of trees must remove their own materials. Materials placed for collection must be bagged, boxed or securely bundled. Each bag, box, or securely tied bundle shall contain material 60 inches in length or less, 6 inches in diameter or less, and weigh 50lbs or less. Any material placed for collection that does not comply with this criteria will not be collected. Property owners that have material exceeding the above requirements should make appropriate arrangements for special collection; however, the cost of the collection and disposal of this material will be billed to the property owner accordingly. The only exception to this policy will be for any tree or brush, which is damaged by a storm. The City of Elroy will provide the collection and disposal of any storm damage material at no cost to the property owner so long as it is properly placed on the terrace for collection.
If you have brush to dispose of before the scheduled pick up date and you have a way to haul it you can take it to the dump site located behind Hansen's IGA. Please be aware that if this privilege is abused by dumping trash into the dumpsite, access to the dumpsite will no longer be allowed. If you see someone dumping trash at the dumpsite please report it immediately by calling City Hall at 608-462-2400
