2019 Brush Collection

The City of Sandwich 2019 Brush Collection Program begins in April. Unbundled brush shall be placed in neat, manageable piles by 7:00 a.m. Monday (Tuesday, May 28 after Memorial Day and Tuesday, September 4 after Labor Day).

Brush will be picked up on the scheduled pickup day only; pickup does not last all week.

Acceptable brush:
- Small branches and limbs ½ inch to 4 inches in diameter that are between 2 to 8 feet in length.
- “Manageable piles” are neatly stacked branches that are all parallel to the street in piles not exceeding 4 feet in height or 8 feet in length. Branches that are parallel to the street can be picked up with the backhoe with less impact on the grass beneath.

Unacceptable items that will not be picked up:
- Brush that is tangled or not in manageable piles.
- Any brush, branches, and limbs which result from contracted services are the responsibility of the contractor to remove and legally dispose of such material.
- Grass clippings and leaves.
- Shrubs and vines with branches less than ½ inches in diameter.
- Branches and limbs that exceed 4 inches in diameter or 8 feet in length.
- Garden waste, root balls, or small plant (perennial) waste.
- Things that are not brush: construction waste, metal, garbage, etc.

Please do not phone City Hall to schedule pickup of brush.

If there has been a City Emergency (water main break, etc.), there may be a delay of a day or two after the scheduled pickup. Once a resident’s brush has been cleared, the City crew will not be back until the following scheduled brush pickup.
