Submitted by the Village of Oswego:

The Village of Oswego provides brush pickup for residents the last full work week of each month from March to November. Brush pickup is not associated with normal garbage/refuse pick up and is handled by the Public Works Department.

Depending on the volume and the weather, this process may take longer than one week.  

Residents are reminded that all brush must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on Monday of the designated week listed below.

All unbundled brush must be placed neatly and parallel or perpendicular to the street with all cut ends facing the same direction.

The Public Works trucks will pass through an area once and continue on. Please do not put brush out after the trucks have been through your area.  

Brush must be less than five inches in diameter and must be tree and bush branches only.  

No logs, wood, root balls, cuttings or clippings or grass clippings will be picked up.  Please do not put brush in a container.  

If your brush is not picked up, an orange tag will be left on your door indicating the reason.  

Mark your calendars for the 2014 pickups: March 24, April 21, May 19, June 23, July 21, Aug. 25, Sept. 22, Oct. 27 and Nov. 17.

MONDAY? ? ? Really? Shouldn't this be pushed off so the city isn't wasting money picking up nothing? I was out this weekend everything is still frozen to the ground and tried to trim some branches and they are frozen solid still. HELLO! Go by the weather conditions not by the calender City of Oswego ! Geeeeezus! Typical.
