Curbside Brush Pickup to Begin for 2017 Season

City of Beaver Dam residents, that receive regular solid waste collection services from the City only, are advised that starting Monday, April 3 through Friday, April 7, 2017, the first scheduled week of brush and shrubbery cutting collection services for 2017 will begin.    

       Collection is provided for single family residents through 4 unit apartment buildings only.  

Regulations are as follows:

        ♦ Residents may place neatly piled loose tree limbs and shrubbery cuttings, up to 7" in thickness and 8' lengths, at the street edge by 7:00 a.m. on their FIRST individual solid waste collection day of the month only.

         ♦ Waste may not be placed out sooner than 24 hours prior to scheduled collection days.

         ♦ Tree limbs and shrubbery cuttings should be stacked so that all cut ends are facing the street if tree border space allows, or in the direction of vehicular travel on the residence side of the street.

         ♦ The intention of this service is to collect tree branches that residents themselves have trimmed from a tree or two in their yard. DPW does not provide a tree removal service and this service is not intended to provide a way for residents to dispose of branches from entire trees that have been cut down or for clearing trees and brush from an entire lot.

         ♦ No brush or shrubbery cuttings are allowed in the Advanced Disposal waste carts.

         ♦ Brush is picked up this one time per month only and cannot be put to the curb at other times during the month. Violations will be tagged with a warning; if not removed from the curb within 24 hours the brush will then be removed by City crews and the property owner will be billed.


            All City residents are also reminded that all such cuttings may also be disposed of at the Department of Public Works Yard Waste Drop-off Site located at 640 S. Center Street, Monday-Friday 7 am – 3:30 pm and Saturdays 10 am – 2 pm. Saturday hours will begin for the 2017 season on April 8th. Questions should be directed to the Dept. of Public Works at 887-4635 or by email through the City’s website address.
