Brush Collection

Now that the brush collection season is over, any additional brush residents may accumulate over the winter should be stored outside the parkway until the program resumes in the spring.  The 2016 collection dates will be publicized on the City of Batavia website next year.

The leaf collection program has concluded for the season.  Residents who may have additional leaves can place them in yard waste bags without stickers, and the bags will be picked up by Advanced Disposal on regularly scheduled refuse collection dates during the month of December.  Refer to the City’s website for details about alternate measures that can be used to dispose of your leaves.  Please contact the Street Division at 630-454-2400 with any questions.
