The cut ends should be facing the street. City crews will collect brush on each street ONE TIME ONLY during your scheduled collection week. Therefore, it is very important that you check when your street comes up on the schedule and make sure your trimmings are at the curb on the first day of the week by 7 am.
Branches SHOULD NOT be cut into short pieces. Please DO NOT put any wire, metal, trash, garden waste, or other debris in the brush that is to be chipped. This could cause serious injury to the crew and damage the chipper. TRIMMINGS DONE BY A CONTRACTOR SHALL BE HAULED AWAY BY THE CONTRACTOR AND NOT LEFT AT THE CURB FOR CITY CREWS TO PICK UP.
No stumps or limbs larger than 6″ in diameter will be taken by the City.
If you have any questions in reference to the street pick-up schedule, please call 314.731.8701, Monday through Friday, 7 am – 3:30 pm.
