 The 2019 Brush Pickup will begin on Monday, May 6th (weather permitting). Collections will continue on the first and third Monday of the month through November 18th. Please place the limbs and brush butt end facing the street along the curb edge, by 6:00 A.M. of the scheduled day. Residents are encouraged to call the Public Works office at 487-2391 and leave the address where the brush is piled. This will assist in providing a more efficient collection service.

Yard waste and tree stumps will not be picked up. Residents may haul brush and yard waste to the drop-off site behind the City Street Department, located at 1520 Jefferson Street. The drop-off site is on the east side of the lot, off Sunset Avenue. Processed mulch is also available at this location, free of charge.

The drop-off site is for residents of the City of Algoma. Non-residents dumping materials will be subject to a municipal ordinance violation fine.
