The city of Norwalk annual brush pickup will be held Monday through Nov. 2. Brush will be picked up on your regular trash day. Follow these rules when putting out your brush:

Place cut brush on curb on your regular trash pickup day.

Do not place entire large trees or bushes on the curb for pickup.

Brush is to be stacked neatly with no roots, stumps or soil attached.

Branches are to be no longer than 6 feet.

If you have a narrow boulevard, you may place brush neatly on the back side of the sidewalk.

No more than one pick-up truck load will be collected from a residence.

Brush will only be collected once. No return trips will be made.

Monday through Nov. 2 is also the last week for curbside yard waste collection. The compost facility, located behind Baines Park, is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through the end of November. The facility is open to city residents only. Residents can drop off their yard waste, leaves and brush at no charge. Bring proof of city residency.
