With 60-degrees weather, it is time for spring cleaning. Residents in Perrysburg Township and Perrysburg have brush pickup collections starting this month.
City of Perrysburg
The City of Perrysburg will start at 7 a.m. Monday on the east side of town. Once crews go down a street, they won't return. A supervisor checks daily to make sure all brush piles were picked up. City crews are taking branches, bushes, logs, stumps, firewood, and Christmas trees.
Brush should be placed at the curb, not in the alley, parallel to the street. The piles shouldn't be tied in bundles, but stacked loosely. Brush can't be longer than 12 feet. If grasses, weeds, sod, or leaves are in the brush pile, it will all be left.
Wood mulch is available for city residents for free at the City Compost Site near the Wastewater Treatment Plant at 1 West Boundary St.
The City Compost Site is available year-round to city residents, with no commercial use, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The compost site is where residents can take grasses, cornstalks, straw bales, branches, bushes, firewood, logs, stumps, and leaves. Residents have to pick up a key to unlock the compost gate from the Department of Public Services at 11980 Roachton Rd.
Road side pickup starts Monday and is for smaller items. Brush pickup will be the following three weeks.
Bush pickup is for tree trimmings and fallen branches, but not for clearing lots or removal of entire trees.
The schedule for brush pickup is north of State Rt. 795 will be the week off April 14, east of State Rt. 199 and south of Rt. 795 will be week of April 21, and west of Rt. 199 will be the week of April 28. Brush needs to be out on the Monday, as crews won't return to an area after conducting the pickup.
Brush should be left at the curbside, as close to the road as possible, with cut ends of branches facing the road. Branches should be left as long as possible and neatly stacked. No weeds or other materials should be in the piles. No brush will be accepted at the Perrysburg Township Maintenance Building.
