Curbside Brush Pick-up to Begin Monday, May 4
The Borough of Carlisle’s annual spring brush collection program will begin on Monday, May 4, and run through Friday, May 15. During the collection period, residents may place their brush and yard waste curbside for collection on their regularly scheduled trash collection day.
In previous years, brush collection lasted one week. With Governor Wolf’s Stay at Home Order in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Borough recognizes that more people are home performing gardening and yard maintenance. Extending the program to two weeks gives those residents who cannot transport materials to the compost site additional opportunities to dispose of brush.
Brush collected includes trees, shrubs, and similar trimmings or parts. No leaves, garden waste, or grass clippings will be collected during this period. Residents wishing to participate in the program should leave their brush curbside on their designated trash collection day in accordance with the following requirements:
- Bind brush with string or twine in lengths of 40 inches or less
- Smaller twigs and branches may be placed in metal or plastic trash cans which will be emptied and returned to the curb
- Brush which is over six inches in diameter will not be collected.
The Borough’s Post Road Compost Facility is also open for Borough residents to drop off brush and yard waste and pick up mulch. Hours of operation are: Wednesday, Noon to 8:00 p.m.; Thursday and Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Please Note: Tree debris brought to the Compost Facility must be less than 12 inches in diameter with a maximum length of 6 feet. You can read more about the Borough's Compost Facility here.
