Spring brush pickup begins April 6

The Montgomery Public Works Department will again be providing a curbside bulk brush collection of brush and limbs.  The spring program is scheduled to begin on April 6 and will be conducted over a five-week period. A resident’s pick-up week will be determined by the regular trash collection schedule. Residents are required to place brush curbside on the Sunday immediately prior to the scheduled collection week. Material placed curbside after the chipper crew has passed will not be picked up.

  • Piles must be placed curbside prior to the start of each week’s collection. Residents are urged to place brush curbside on Sunday immediately prior to your scheduled collection week as material placed curbside after the chipper crew has passed will not be picked up.
  • Brush containing nails, metal, stones or excessive dirt will not be picked up.
  • Vines and branches with thorns will not be picked up.
  • Limbs may be of any length and between 1/2 inch and 8 inches in diameter. Shorter branches, twigs, and clippings should be placed in yard waste bags and/or cans to be picked up by Rumpke on your regular waste collection day.
  • Brush and limbs must be placed at the edge of the road or along the curb with the “cut” ends of the brush toward the street in small piles. Please do not create large stacks or interwoven piles with “cut” ends placed in different directions as this makes the material difficult for crews to separate for collection.
  • Brush piles that are tied into bundles or are tangled will not be picked up.
  • Stumps, root balls, and logs are not to be placed curbside for brush collection but may be placed out for Rumpke waste collection on your regularly scheduled day. Each item must not weigh more than 60 pounds.

For additional information, please contact City Hall at 513-891-2424.  The fall brush pickup schedule will be published in the September Bulletin, and the program will start September 14.  Tips to organize the brush and pick-up schedules are also found here.


City Brush Pick-Up Schedule and Guidelines

To protect public health and safety, it is important to evaluate all trees or shrubs on your property to ensure public right-of-way areas are free from obstructions. This includes assessing vegetation adjacent to sidewalks and streets. The Montgomery Property Maintenance Code requires vegetation to be trimmed back in order to promote the safe flow of pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Proper maintenance of trees and vegetation helps provide the City and its visitors with a safe and healthy urban forest.
