2012 Batavia Residential Brush Collection Program
Posted on 1/5/2012
Category: Public Works and Utilities



The brush collection program will resume in May, 2013.  Please check back in the spring for the 2013 schedule. 


Curbside residential brush pickup continues (see schedule below).  Property owners are scheduled for a monthly pickup through the end of November.  Please have your brush out no sooner than the weekend before your scheduled pickup to prevent possible code violation.   Brush cannot be left out on the parkway between collection dates.   Keep in mind that crews can move through an area very quickly, and once they pass your address they will not return until the next scheduled pickup date.  The amount of brush that has been placed out citywide dictates how quickly your area will be reached, but each side of town is typically completed by Friday of the scheduled week.  Major storms may affect the pickup schedule.  Unincorporated residents should contact their township offices regarding the brush collection services that may be available to them. 


The following procedures must be followed to ensure the collection of your brush:

·         Brush/limbs are to be at the curb for collection no later than 7:00 a.m. on Monday of your scheduled week

·         Maximum length of limbs is 12’ and maximum diameter is 10” (logs cannot be split)

·         Stack brush in large piles with the cut ends facing the curb away from mailboxes, utility poles/boxes, hydrants, and parked vehicles

·         Brush should be placed in the front or side parkway and will not be collected from alleys or vacant lots

·         Brush/limbs must not be tied, bundled, in containers, bagged, or in the street

·         Do not place stumps, roots, landscape material, lumber, firewood, or foreign objects in pile

·         Program is for residentially-generated brush only, not contractor removals or trimming. 


For materials that do not meet the above specifications:

·         Veolia Environmental Services will collect yard waste bags/32-gallon containers consisting of twigs, evergreen clippings, roots, stumps, and plants on your regular trash collection day, beginning in April.  Maximum weight is 50 pounds per bag/32-gallon container.  Veolia logo paper bags are prepaid and do not need a sticker; generic bags require a yard waste sticker.  32-gallon containers must be clearly marked “Yard Waste” on the front. 

·         Residents with limbs/brush exceeding the requirements for the Residential Brush Collection Program can contact a private service to have them removed at the resident’s expense.


If your brush was out at 7 a.m. on Monday of your scheduled collection week and not collected by the end of the workday on Friday, please notify the Street Division the following Monday.
