Curbside Brush Pickup

The City of Monticello offers curbside brush pick-up at residences located within the city limits, free of charge. Pick-up will take place on or around the first Tuesday of every month, April through October. Brush pickup for 2022 will begin on Tuesday, April 5th,  WEATHER DEPENDENT.

Guidelines for this service are:

  • Only brush will be picked up- no grass clippings, tree stumps, landscape timbers, or building material of any kind will be accepted.
  • Material may not be more than 6 feet in length, or 12 inches in diameter
  • Materials must be piled in one direction, parallel with the street, away from obstructions such as fences, mailboxes, water meters, parked cars or fire hydrants.

If any brush that is outside of the parameters described above is found, City Staff will leave a "door hanger" notifying the resident that corrective action is needed to enable the brush pickup. If you have a great quantity of landscape debris to be picked up, you are encouraged to contact the Public Works Department at 217.762.7512 or Email Public Works so they may make arrangements to have the appropriate equipment available

Leaf Pickup is weekly on Tuesdays beginning in November through leaf season.  Leaves must be in paper landscape waste bags, and placed curbside.

The City will pick up non-artificial Christmas trees, with ornaments and decorations removed following Christmas.
