Large Brush Items

New signups for Operation Dump Truck are indefinitely suspended in light of the current health situation.  Anyone already signed up to receive the drop box will receive it at its scheduled time.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Operation Dump Truck

Operation Dump Truck accommodates quantities of brush and limbs too large for the call-in pick up program. Under this program, the city will deliver a roll-off dump box, or in some cases an actual dump truck, into which the resident may load limbs and other brush for disposal by the city.

This service is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to offer this service, the city asks residents to observe the following guidelines and procedures:

Schedule a Date

Sign up for the service at the city’s Public Works Department facility between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Residents will be required to sign a release form when the debris box is reserved. Available dates are generally scheduled far in advance - so be sure to plan ahead.

Dump boxes will not be delivered, picked up or dumped on Saturdays, Sundays or scheduled holidays. The use of a dump box is limited to two consecutive days, and up to two occasions per year, per household. The city will only dump debris boxes once per day.

Be Prepared

A dump box will be delivered on the scheduled date between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., and pick up will be on the scheduled date between 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. The dump box will be placed on your driveway for you to load. It is best to cut limbs to no more than 4 feet in length so that they will fit in the box. Overhanging loads are not permitted. The dimensions of the box are: 8-feet wide, 10-feet long and 42-inches deep.

Include Only Biodegradable Plant Materials

No building materials, plastic bags or trash will be accepted. Grass clippings are also prohibited. The resident will be charged if a load is contaminated with trash or other unacceptable materials. Charges will include, but are not limited to, any disposal fees for load separation, and/or labor time and equipment required by city personnel. 

Violation of these guidelines will result in the termination of the service, and the resident will be responsible for removal and disposal of debris. A resident who combines items other than yard waste will not be permitted to participate in the program in the future.
