Overview

The City’s Curbside Brush Collection is a service offered to Wood Dale residents to assist them with their landscape maintenance. The program is designed to dispose of large branches and tree limbs that cannot be collected through regular refuse collection. Curbside Brush Collection is available from April-November.

Program Guidelines

The City will have 6 different Brush Collection weeks.  Superior Ground Services, Inc, will begin on the Monday of each week and will have 5 days to complete each cycle.

April 9-13

May 21-25

July 16-20

September 17-21

October 22-26

November 26-30

Branches and limbs must be on the curb BY 6:30 A.M. on the Monday of each collection week. Only ONE PASS is made through each area. NO CALLBACKS are allowed. If brush is placed at the curb after the routes have been completed, it will not be picked up until the following month and must be removed from the parkway.  No material may be placed curbside prior to the SUNDAY before the scheduled pickup.
