Solid Waste Management Brush Collection

Brush Collection service is responsible for collecting yard trimmings and it is offered to Residential Customers only as part of their normal collection services along with bulk item removal; brush removal or collection is not included with Commercial Collection Services but is available through special pick up services for their removal ( Residential & Commercial Collection Services - Commercial Container Service, defined). The City of Edinburg is divided into five areas; each is provided service once every five weeks. Each area’s collection begins on Monday and takes one full week to complete. Brush must be placed on the parkway the Sunday before collection begins in each area. Brush collection crews will make only one pass in each neighborhood. Brush put out after our crews have passed will not be collected.

In an effort to make your yard maintenance more consistent with Brush Collection schedules, alleviate potential fire and health hazards and to maintain a Clean City, we herein furnish the dates (by week) in which Brush Collection service will be provided at your home. We recommend that these dates be considered for placement on your calendar for future reference and that Yard Waste be placed out the day prior to the week of collection. Please make sure that brush is free of any foreign materials. Appliance, furniture, or small accumulation of trash should be placed separate from the brush.



Collection Specifications:
Brush must be properly prepared and meet the following specifications:

  • Branches must measure between 3 feet and 6 feet in length, and be no greater than 6 inches in diameter.
  • Stack branches neatly on the parkway with cut ends toward the street.
  • Piles must be placed at the curb by Sunday night before scheduled collection.
  • Place brush on the parkway in front of your home only.
  • Do not tie or bundle your brush piles for the free bulk brush collection program.
  • Brush piles containing nails, metal, stones, vines, root balls, stumps or lumber will not be collected. If brush contains anything other than branches it will not be collected.
  • Euring collection white goods and bulk items consisting of furniture, appliance, rugs, water heaters, mattresses, etc; will also be collected. These items must be placed a few feet away from the brush pile.

The following materials will NOT be collected by City Crews; these include: earth, rocks, broken concrete, asphalt, roofing, shingles or any thrash generated by construction or demolition activities either by residents or contractors for businesses or residences. Arrangements can be made with the department for special pick up assistance.

Out of Cycle Brush:
If you need to have your brush, or other white goods picked up while brush crews are not servicing your area, you can request to have this material picked up for an additional fee. Please note that the placing of waste in any vacant lot, alley, curb or sidewalk in a manner which may cause obstruction or unsafe condition is unlawful. Please call the Department of Solid Waste Management office if you should have any doubt, on the placement of your brush or garbage at 381-5635. Fees are based on the quantity of material being disposed.

"Don't Bag It"
Leave grass clippings on the lawn - it's a great fertilizer, helps to reduce watering, and saves space in the City landfill! Take extra care to prevent allow the loose glass clippings from entering the gutters, storm drains, and street.
