2. Brush and Leaf Pickup Procedure
2.1. TVPOA Brush Pickup Schedule
Public Works staff removes brush all year and removes leaves November through
February. Staff moves continuously throughout the Village removing brush a d
leaves (Nov -Feb) but please note that it may be more than 4 weeks between the
cycles depending on the volume.
Please remember to
place your brush along your ditch line or in the road rightaway. DO NOT place
your brush in vacant lots, as it will not be picked up and is unsightly.
Public Works staff
will pick up brush from homes only, unless the work was hired out. If
work is performed by hired help (landscaper, etc.) they are responsible for
hauling off the brush. Any clearing from a vacant lot is to be removed by
the owner or person hired to do the work. Trees/brush following a lot clearing
for new construction must be removed by the builder.
2.2. Brush and Leaf Pickup Procedures
BRUSH UP ON BRUSH PICK-UP PROCEDURES
Each year, Public Works provides brush and leaf pickup services for Village
residents. Brush is
picked up year-round and leaves are
picked up November through February. The crew moves
continuously throughout the Village year-round.
In order to make it more efficient for everyone, residents are no longer
required to call in their pick-up requests. Public Works moves continuously
which means they will visit each neighborhood within the Village and remove
the debris. Please place brush and leaves into separate piles.
Public Works will start in Kahite and work through each neighborhood on their
way to Coyatee.
If the crews get through the Village, they will start over again.
Brush should be at least three feet long,
no more than six inches in diameter, and free from any metal objects. Piles
should be placed along the street right-of-way in front of your home. No
household trash, building material, grass clippings, shrubs or metal items
will be picked up.
not placed in the street right-of-way in front of your home will not be
picked up. Please separate brush and leaves into separate piles.
Once again, no calls are required; simply put your brush out in your
neighborhood and it will be picked up. We hope this process will make the
brush removal system easier and more efficient for all residents.
Leaves should be placed in the right-of-way
in front of your home and it will be picked up. Public Works will not take
leaves if they are bagged. If you wish to bag your leaves, you can put the
bags out with your household garbage and they will take them.
If you have any questions about this procedure, call the Public Works office
at (865) 458-4522.
*NOTE: While the goal is to pick up all brush
and leaves in all neighborhoods each month, we may be slightly behind
schedule due to the amount of brush or leaves. However, we will continue the
route until it is completed and then we will start over. Please be patient
and we will pick up the debris as soon as possible.
