Brush Pickup

Lisle Township Highway Department offers branch pick-up as a service to residents who live on roads that we maintain.  This program is intended to help homeowners dispose of limbs and branches that do NOT qualify as yard waste.  Our equipment is not designed to grind small twigs, evergreen trimmings or rosebushes.  Your garbage service will take yard waste and roots for a nominal cost.  If it is baggable, it is yard waste.

Branch pick-up begins on the 1st Monday of these SIX months: May, June, July, August, September and October.

Please have your bundles at curbside by 6:30 a.m. of the first day of pickup.  Often it takes our crew three or more days to service the entire township. Therefore, your bundles may not get picked up until later in the week.  We make only one pass through each area each month.

Please abide by the following rules:

  • ALL branches must be cut in lengths of four (4) feet or less.
  • NO branches should be larger than four (4) inches in diameter.
  • ALL branches must be securely bundled with twine, string or other comparable material.  Do not use wire or plastic, please.
  • EACH bundle should not exceed twenty-five (25) pounds in weight.

If we do not pick up your brush, we will leave a red tag notice citing the reason.
