Extended Seasonal Brush Drop-off Program - 2020
In response to the cancellation of the 2020 spring brush/branch pickup program due to staffing constraints caused by the COVID-19 pandemic response, the Village is extending the brush drop-off program this year. Residents may bring brush to the Public Works Vehicle Maintenance Facility, 2405 Pembroke Avenue, on the first and third Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. free of charge. This program will begin on May 2, 2020 and runs through September 19, 2020. We will be accepting residential brush/branches only (no commercial loads), and proof of residency is required. For more information, call 847-490-6800.
