The Department of Public Works provides curbside brush pick-up to its residents from April through October. The normal pick up and chipping schedule is the 3rd Monday of the month starting in April (weather permitting) and ending in October. Please follow the guidelines below:

  • Brush should be out to the curb by 7am on the morning of pick up.
  • Place brush and tree trimmings in several small piles no larger than 2’ tall x 20’ long.
  • The branches can be up to 6’ long. The longer the branch, the better–NO NEED TO CUT UP INTO SMALL PIECES (it is safer for our workers for branches to be longer!)
  • Place cut ends of trimmings facing the street.
  • We will accept up to 4” maximum diameter branches.
  • The Village is unable to accept stumps, garden waste, leaves, grass, weeds, perennial clippings, and corn stalks. These are not materials that we will chip. However, these items CAN be brought to the recycling center on recycling Saturdays for disposal. Our recycling center is located at the north end of Municipal Drive, inside the fenced lot just south of the river.
  • The Village of Newburg reserves the right to reject any materials that are not properly prepared. The Brush Collection Policy limits brush chipping to tree & bush trimmings. If you have firewood, contact the Department of Public Works. If a contractor is hired to cut down a full tree in your yard, the homeowner will be responsible for having the contractor remove all brush and logs. If you plan to cut down a full tree in your yard on your own, contact the Department of Public Works to discuss options available to you.
  • Wood chips are available to Village residents at no cost and can be picked up at the Village maintenance yard. If you would like wood chips delivered, contact the Department of Public Works. There is a $35.00 delivery charge for wood chips delivered to non-residents that live within 5 miles of the Village. You will be placed on a priority list in the order your call was received.
