Wauseon begins branch, limb pick-up

Street sweeping also begins

Staff report

Wauseon City crews have begun branch and limb pick-up service along city streets.

There will be two pickups per month in the north and south sections. The crews will pick up in the north section on the first and third weeks and in the south on the second and fourth weeks. The north and south sections are divided by the Norfolk and Western railroad tracks.

Branches and limbs must be cut no longer than six feet in length and three inches in diameter. Branches and limbs must be stacked in a straight pile with the butt ends in one direction.

Brush will not be picked up in alleys. Chunk wood will be picked up if piled at the curb and not heavier than 75 pounds.

Please note, only branches and limbs will be picked up. If you cut down an entire tree, you are responsible for removal of this wood. If a contractor is trimming or cutting trees he is also responsible for his cuttings.

If you have leaves left over from last fall, you can bring them to the grass pit located at the Public Works Department’s entrance off of Linfoot Street. There is no leaf pick-up during brush pickup season.

Also, the street sweeper will be sweeping the streets on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

When leaf pick-up begins in the fall, there will be no brush pick-up.

If you have any questions, call the Public Works Department at 419-335-8376.
