Important- Please read!

The Chipper service is running and as always, we do our best to stay on schedule. However, when circumstances beyond our control happen, we ask that you please remain patient as we work our way through the neighborhoods and continue to do pick-ups as safely and efficiently as possible.

To check out what week we are on and where we are starting our route.  


Not sure what week your subdivision or street is assigned?  When looking at the assigned week, always remember that we work in full weeks.  So if you are assigned the 1st week of the month, that means that the week will be the FIRST Monday of that month. Then the remainder of the weeks will fall in line after that.

Brentwood's Chipper Service Only Accepts Paper Bags

 The City of Brentwood offers brush collection once a month to all residents on residential streets.  This service cost the city roughly $500,000 annually.    To continue this free service, we ask that you follow the rules.


  1. Brush must be behind the curb with cut ends towards the curb.

  2. Brush must not exceed eight feet in length and three feet in height.

  3. Limbs and stumps larger than six inches in diameter will not be picked up.

  4. Debris that is the byproduct of commercial cutting/trimming will not be accepted.

  5. Leaves and grass clippings will be collected in brown paper bags only.   Plastic bags will not be accepted.  Why the switch?

  6. Do not stack brush, clippings or other leaves near stationary objects like a fire hydrant, mailbox, utility pole, etc.

 **If a pile violates of any of the rules and is not picked up, residents will receive a door hanger on the flag of your mailbox with a box checked giving a reason why. 




The Right Way To Set Out Brush

 Large amounts of brush and large trees removed by commercial landscaping services must be disposed of by the company.   If you hire someone to cut your brush, be sure that the cost of hauling the brush, yard waste and other debris away is included in the price estimate you receive.  The free Chipper Service operated by the City of Brentwood is designated to accommodate routine trimming and pruning done by the homeowner.  Without limitations, the City would be unable to service all homes monthly.

Grapple Truck Hits Brentwood Routes in 2019  


The City of Brentwood started using a grapple truck in 2019 which collects brush more efficiently.   The grapple truck will require only one operator, will increase speed, and reduce Injury and employee fatigue.  The grapple truck is used during storm clean-up, or large debris blocking a spillway, culvert, or road.
