The brush drop-off site is closed to residents for the 2019 season due to the Cedar Lake Road construction project. 

The free shredded mulch, screened black dirt and compost that is typically stored at the site will not be available this year due to construction this season.

Organics participants received notice by email on May 2 for special compost pickup. If your household participates in organics and you did not receive the email notice, contact public works.
