Beaver Dam DPW To Begin Brush And Shrub Collections

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Department of Public Works will begin picking up brush and shrubbery cuttings on Monday (4/1). DPW Supervisor Dan Mulhern says city residents who receive solid waste collection services can place neatly-piled, loose tree limbs and shrubbery cuttings at the street edge by 7am on their first waste collection day of the month.  Shrubbery cuttings cannot exceed seven inches in thickness and eight feet in length. Mulhern says if there is enough room in the tree border, limbs should be stacked so that all cut ends are facing the street. Brush cannot be placed in Advanced Disposal waste carts. Mulhern notes that the intention of the service is to collect tree branches that residents have trimmed from a tree or two in their yard.  He says does the city does not provide for tree removal hauling and the 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. Yard waste can also be dropped off at the DPW garage on South Center Street (7am-to-3:30pm), which starting April 6th will be open on Saturdays (10am-to-2pm). Brush pick-up continues once a month through the first collection day in November.
