Brush collection begins Wednesday (June 11)

Metro Public Works will begin brush collection in "Area 9," which includes Sylvan Park, on Wednesday, June 11. To ensure that your brush is not missed, you should have limbs and all other yard waste out and ready for pick-up no later than that day.

Residents in Metro Nashville’s Urban and General Services Districts have their brush and yard waste collected five times a year. Instead of chippers, Metro Public Works and its contractor, SRS Inc., use knuckle boom trucks equipped with a mechanical arm that lifts brush piles up and into a trailer that’s pulled behind the truck. This method of collecting brush is quieter and safer than using wood chippers, and allows Metro to provide quicker and more efficient service.

Additional information about brush collection and how to leave your brush for pickup is available at the Public Works Web site. Call Public Works at (615) 880-1000 if you need more information or have other questions.
