10/26/11 – The Beaver Dam Department of Public Works Department says curbside brush pick-up will be suspended for the season after the first week of November. Director of Facilities David Stoiser says residents need to have shrubbery cuttings and neatly piled loose tree limbs up to seven inches in thickness and eight feet in length in the terrace area at the street’s edge for pick-up by 7am during their first solid waste collection day of the month. Waste cannot be placed out any sooner than 24 hours before the scheduled collection day. Yard materials can also be dropped off at the Public Works Garage Yard Waste Drop-off Site at 640 South Center Street, Monday through Friday from 7am to 3:30pm. Collection begins next Tuesday. The service will start up again next April.
