How do I dispose of woody materials?
Put woody material between 2 and 5 inches in diameter with the regular refuse, and set it at the curb by 7 a.m. on trash day. Tie brush securely into bundles up to 4 feet long and 15 inches in diameter, not weighing more than 40 pounds, and set it at the curb. Logs over 5 inches in diameter must be disposed of privately.

To have brush between 1 and 6 inches in diameter and between 4 and 12 feet in length chipped at the curb, call the City's recommended contractor for details and costs. The City's recommended contractor is JH Hart, who may be reached at 586-795-5581.
