BRUSH COLLECTION

Benner Township collects brush in the spring and in the fall using a call in system.   You MUST call 355-1419 no later than 10/22/21 to be placed on the fall 2021 brush collection list.   Brush must be ready to be picked up on Monday, October 25 by 7 a.m.  We may not get to you on the 25th but we ask that you are ready for us then.

Guidelines for brush collection are:                                                                                                              *Brush must be piled with cut ends of limbs in the same direction towards the street.                *Limbs must be cut to be able to be fed into the chipper.  Limbs larger than 4 inches in diameter will not be collected.                                                                                                               *Do not tie brush in bundles.                                                                                                                     *Stumps, old firewood, construction material, thorn bushes, grasses, vines and plant waste will not be picked up.                                                                                                                                      *Maintenance crews will not enter private property.                                                                                *Crews will spend no more than 20 minutes at one property.  If your pile is too large to be chipped in 20 minutes, please make other arrangements.                                                                      *Do not pile brush in front of or block fire hydrants or storm drains.                                                  *This collection is for trimming of bushes and trees, not for tree removal or site clearing.
