Changes To Superior’s Annual Brush Collection
Officials with the City of Superior are working to get the word out about the changes that have been made to their annual Spring Brush Collection - which starts in May. In order to broadcast the message to residents, they've created a page on their website that details the important changes from last years collection.
In general, here's what you'll need to know (changes are listed in bold type):
Tree/Brush Pile Size (Limits):
- The brush collection crew will limit chipping time to 15 minutes per pile.
- To match the Time Limit, piles at a MAX should be 4 feet tall, 15 feet long and 6 feet deep.
- Individual material size is REQUIRED to be:
- No shorter than 18 inches or longer than 12 feet in length.
- No larger than 12 inches in diameter.
- As a general rule of thumb please keep your pile smaller than a standard police car.
Tree/Brush Pile Contents
- Brush collection serves property owners who maintain their own property.
- Material cut by contractors will NOT be collected.
- Materials cleared from lots or undeveloped property will NOT be collected.
- Remove all roots, stumps, metal, rocks and dirt.
- Do NOT put brush in bags, boxes, or any other container.
- Christmas trees/wreaths must be free of all items (wires, stands, ornaments etc.)
- The City of Superior will NOT be collecting Leaves, Grass Clippings or Garden Debris in the spring cleanup. You can take them to WLSSD or the Moccasin Mike Landfill.
Tree/Brush Pile Location
- Brush must be piled in a neat, orderly fashion to assist collection efficiency.
- Place all cut debris with the trunks facing the street at a 90 degree angle.
- Piles are to be placed in the right-of-way away, a maximum of 3 feet from the curb.
- Avoid placing brush in any ditch, drainage or sidewalk.
