Current Brush Collection Areas 

Week 1: Completed

**On Tuesday, April 17, 2018 the City Council voted in favor of providing $200,000 in funding for the March nor’easter tree and brush debris collection. The Public Works Department will begin to collect tree and brush during the week of May 7, 2018. This special collection replaces the original brush collection scheduled for May 7-11. The special collection will move systematically throughout the city and will not be aligned with residents' regular trash and recycling collection day.

Storm debris to be collected should be 14 inches in diameter or less and does not need to be bundled or cut to specific length or dimensions. Trees, tree branches and brush will be collected; small twigs can be bagged in biodegradable bags only. The City will not collect tree stumps, leaves, grass clippings or construction debris.

Residents should stack the tree and brush debris at the edge of the road as neatly as possible and should be careful not to obstruct the roadway or sidewalks. City employees will not enter private property to gather the debris.**

Did you know?

About 50% of the City's roadways were built before World War II. 25% of the current stormwater, water and wastewater infrastructure put in place at that time  is now over 70 years old.

The City of Framingham tripled in population during the 25 years after World War II and 50% of the stormwater, water and wastewater systems were installed.

In 2006, the city accelerated the Capital Improvement Program to remedy this situation.
