Brush and Leaf Collections

Hi District 29 Residents, We are in AREA 4. It's time to get your brush to the curb ASAP! Per Public Works.... Metro Nashville Public Works Department will begin Brush and Leaf collections in our area on 1/26/2011. To ensure that your brush will be collected, you should have limbs and all other yard waste out and ready for pick-up on the date above. Place only limbs, branches and true yard waste by the curb for brush crews. Lumber, household trash and other types of debris found in your brush pile means it won't get picked up. Brush piles should not be placed close to mailboxes, utility poles, fences, trees or other stationary objects. The mechanical arm of the knuckle boom truck needs enough room to lift the brush pile up and into the trailer pulled behind the truck. Place leaves in biodegradable paper bags only. Paper biodegradable bags can be purchased at most hardware stores, Wal-Mart's, Target, Home Depot, etc. Public Works also has a supply of these bags available for purchase at the Omohundro Convenience Center: 5 bags for $3.00 and 10 bags for $6.00. Plastic bags will not be picked up. If you have any questions, please contact us at 615-880-1000 or visit Brush Do's and Don'ts. See the attached map for future dates as well. Please share this information with your neighbors! All Maps - Dates of Pickup and Much More Information can be found at: Public Works Gratefully, Vivian Vivian Wilhoite Councilmember, District 29 589-2003
