The Village of Brewster Department of Public Works will be going through the Village on a weekly basis to collect unwanted leaves and brush. Hedge and tree trimmings should be tied in bundles no larger than three feet in length and 16 inches in diameter. Leaves that need to be picked up must be loose on the edge of the street but off of the sidewalk. Leaves will only be cleaned up if they are on the side of the street. After November 30th of each year, grass clippings and leaves shall be placed in open plastic containers or paper bags for collection. Do not intermingle grass clippings and leaves with other debris such as rocks, wood, metal, hard plastics, tree branches of any size, etc. This will damage the vacuum that cleans up the leaves and will delay collections. Wet leaves will not be collected. Tree stumps will not be collected.

Please review the Village Code: Chapter 205: Solid Waste for more information.
