Fairfield’s brush pickup begins May 6
The city of Fairfield will begin its spring brush-only pickup at 7 a.m., May 6.
All brush — that which could be burned or chipped — should be put in a neat pile next to the street, curbside.
Brush must be placed by the curb and away from poles, fences and water shut-offs before May 6 to ensure pick up. The city will not make second trips to any streets.
If any damage occurs due to brush being placed over water shut-offs, the city will not be responsible.
This does not include leaves and yard waste, which will continue to be picked up in the City Yard Waste Bags with regular recycling pickup.
Nothing bigger than 24-inches in diameter and 13-feet in length will be picked up.
Curbside piles should not interfere with traffic.
Residents are asked to not place brush at the curb before Monday.
City crews no longer conduct the annual bulk item trash pickup due to rising costs and funding deficits.
Residents need to contract directly with waste haulers for bulk trash removal, such as appliances or furniture, or donate reusable items to the numerous local reuse businesses.
City code prohibits trash in yards and city right-of-way and violators may be fined if problem items are not removed.
