Brush Pickup Requirements:
Yard waste must be cut to lengths not exceeding feet and each limb should not be wider than 6 inches. In the city of Bowling Green, brush must be stacked neatly and placed curbside for pickup. A boom truck with a large mechanical arm will pick up the brush, so the brush must be placed in an accessible location away from trees, mailboxes, utility poles, overhead wired, and any other possible obstructions.
Scott Waste will pick up as much as 3 cubic yards of brush. If the homeowner has more than 3 cubic yards of brush, Scott Waste will negotiate a fee with the homeowner prior to disposing of the brush.
Scott Waste will only pick up brush that has been cut or trimmed by the homeowner. Any contractor, landscaper, lawn service, or individual doing the work for the homeowner is required to dispose of all brush themselves. In other franchised areas outside of the City of Bowling Green, brush must be cut to specifications, tied in bundles, and placed curbside so that the regular route driver can handle them.
