Brush Pick-Up: April 1st – May 31st *

* PLUS the second Monday in July, August & September

Brush pick-up is a service provided to Village Residents from April 1st to May 31st and NEW for 2019 we have added additional pick-up days during the summer months which include the second Monday of July, August & September.

The Village offers storm damage removal up to (2) weeks after a storm. This does NOT include tree trunks or stumps.

Brush is defined as tree and bush branches that are
less than 5 inches in diameter and less than 10 feet in length.


Residents are asked to place unbundled brush parallel or perpendicular to the street in neat bundles with all cut ends facing the same direction.
Please DO NOT mix with leaves.

DO NOT place brush out for pick up after May 31st
During the months of July, August & September you may place brush curbside (10) days prior to the second Monday of that month. Please note that the 1st load is free. Any load(s) thereafter, to be determined by the Highway Department Super, will be charged $150. After the second Monday of September you will be directed to make other arrangements for brush removal. The Town of Washington Transfer Station accepts recycled goods, brush, leaves and grass with a valid permit.

DO NOT pile brush or other materials on storm catch basins
This can cause flooding situations and clog the storm drains.

DO NOT put out inappropriately prepared brush or debris
This service is not meant for land clearing by homeowners or landscaping generated by contractors. It is offered to our residents to assist with yard upkeep. The village will not pick up logs, tree stumps, tree trunks, wood, root balls, cuttings, or grass clippings. We reserve the right to remove inappropriately prepared brush or debris and will assess a special removal fee to the property owner.

DO NOT put grass clippings, dirt or sod in the street for removal
This is not allowed under any circumstance and they are never eligible for curbside pick-up. This can cause costly repairs to the catch basins. During storms these materials find their way to catch basins and may cause backups in our system.

This is not included in the brush pick-up program. Transfer station passes may be purchased at the Town of Washington Town Hall located at 10 Reservoir Drive.
