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.

Volume & Brush Size Requirements In order to maintain program efficiency, the following guidelines are strictly adhered to:

  • Any brush or trees which are trimmed or cut by a private contractor will not be removed.

  • Special pick up services will still be made by the Wood Dale Public Works Department following major storms to remove debris.  Please contact Public Works to see if there will be a special pick up.

  • Christmas tree removal is done in the Month of January by the Wood Dale Public Works Department.

  • All branches 2" to 8" in diameter must be neatly stacked ; these branches can be up to 15' in length.  These are to be placed at the curb for removal twice a year, Spring and Fall, by the Wood Dale Public Works Department.  (All brush must be placed at the curb by no later than 6:30 am on the Monday of the listed collection week).

  • If you have branches to be removed outside of the scheduled Spring and Fall pick up weeks that are 2” to 8” in diameter, or larger, they must be cut to 14" in length and neatly stacked at the curb for possible removal by consumers for fire wood.

  • Branches less than 2” in diameter must be securely tied in bundles, no more than 4’ in length (tie with twine only, no wire or strapping materials); small twigs and branches less than 2’ in length should be put into your yard waste container, or brown paper yard waste bag, and also placed at the curb for weekly waste pick up by Flood Brothers.

  • Large roots and dirt must be removed from any brush and put into your yard waste container, for weekly waste pick up by the City’s ree contractor.
