City Offers Brush Pickup Schedule Online
February 7, 2008 - The City of Knoxville has provided a simple way for residents to find out when their brush will be picked up.

Starting this month citizens can find out when the city's Public Services Division crews will be in their neighborhood providing brush pickup.

The information is available by accessing the city's website at www.cityofknoxville.org and then clicking on the "Brush Pickup Schedule" icon on the right side of the page.

That will direct the user to fill in their street and let them know when crews will be in their neighborhood to pick up brush.

Further information is available by calling 311, Knoxville's phone number.

The new service is the result of a cooperative effort between 311, the Public Services Division and the city's Information Systems Division.

The City of Knoxville's Public Service Department crews collect brush and other household yard waste every two weeks on pre-set schedules from February 1 through November 1 of each year.

Yard waste should be placed next to the street in an unobstructed area and kept separate from other trash.

On each two-week cycle, a single 6' x 6' x 6' pile of brush or leaves will be collected.

Each year, the City picks up approximately 33,000 tons of yard waste, all of which is recycled into reusable mulch via contract with Shamrock Organic Products.

During the annual fall leaf collection season brush pick-up is suspended and collected as resources are available.

Please note that although brush schedules are pre-set and consistent, heavy storms may cause minor shifts in the schedule. All changes will be reflected in the 311-information system.
