Weekly updates will be posted to keep citizens up-to-date on the status of regular bulk and brush collection.

The following areas are projected to have brush and bulk collection from May 18 through May 22. Please keep in mind that these are estimates and may change as a result of the larger-than-normal amount of bulk and brush at the curb.

May 19: Finish Unshaded Monday
May 20: Begin Unshaded Tuesday
May 21: Finish Unshaded Tuesday and begin Unshaded Wednesday

Users may also take bulk and brush to the citizen Convenience Center, which is located at 402 S.
