Brush Removal & Pickup

NEW RESIDENTIAL BRUSH PICKUP PROGRAM

St. Charles Township Road District has contracted with Kramer Tree Service to pick up the brush in unincorporated St. Charles Township.  This has replace the old Brush Pickup Program that was in place for over 20 years.  Please READ the procedures that are required so that your brush will be picked up.
Here are the following procedures that must be followed to ensure your brush being picked up:

Brush/limbs are to be out by the road, not in the road, no later than 7:00 am on the Monday of that scheduled week pick up;

Maximum diameter is 12 inches;

Maximum length is 12 feet;

Stack brush in large piles, not several small piles like before, with the cut ends facing the road, keeping away from mailboxes, utility poles/boxes, hydrants and parked cars;

Brush should be placed in the front or side parkway and will not be picked up from vacant lots;

Do not tie or bundle brush/limbs or put brush/limbs in containers or bags;

This program is strictly for residentially-generated brush only, NOT FOR CONTRACTOR REMOVALS OR TRIMMINGS;

IF YOU HIRE A TREE SERVICE TO TAKE A TREE DOWN, THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR HAULING ALL BRUSH;

We also WILL  NOT PICK UP AFTER ANY LOT CLEARINGS;

Residents with brush/limbs exceeding the requirements for the Residential Brush Pickup Program can contact a private service to have them removed at the resident’s expense;
