Brush Collection Begins Monday, May 7

The following is from the City of Framingham:


All debris must be placed at the edge of the road by May 7, 2018

Storm debris to be collected should be 14 inches in diameter or less and does not need to be bundled or cut to specific length or dimensions. Trees, tree branches and brush will be collected; small twigs should be bagged in biodegradable bags only.

The City will not collect tree stumps, leaves, grass clippings or construction debris.

Residents should stack tree and brush debris at the edge of the road as neatly as possible, but should be careful not to obstruct the roadway or sidewalks. City employees will not enter private property to gather the debris.

Crews are working through the City in a systematic manner, accounting for construction crews and trash and recycling days to avoid conflicts. Different equipment will be utilized for different types and sizes of the storm debris and storm debris piles. What this means is that, although we are trying to collect debris in the same area at the same time, your neighbor’s pile may be picked up at a different time than yours given that it may require a different type of equipment to collect, or to be efficient in our operation.

If you have concerns, you can check our website, which will have a map of the completed streets, or call the Highway Division at 508-532-6030. A supervisor will be confirming that all material has been collected on a street before adding it to the completed streets map; therefore, once a street has been deemed complete, City crews will not return.

The annual brush collection normally taking place on your trash day will be combined with this special collection.

This special collection is not aligned with your regular trash and recycling collection day. 

All material must be placed at the curb by May 7 for collection.

The Yard Waste Facility on Dudley Road is now open for the season. Residents are still required to purchase a permit to utilize the facility. Permits can be purchased at the Recycling Drop-off Center located at 255 Mount Wayte Avenue during the hours of operation, Friday and Saturday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.or at the Public Works Facility located at 100 Western Avenue, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
