Special Brush Collection This Week in Select Areas of Southwest Naperville

Collection will address tree, brush debris due to July 23 tornado

(July 29, 2022 update: The special brush collection for certain areas in southwest Naperville has now concluded. Any remaining brush on private property should be disposed of through the City’s weekly yard waste program or through a privately contracted tree removal company.)

NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Due to the July 23, 2022 EF-0 tornado that occurred in southwest Naperville, Public Works will conduct a special brush collection the week of July 25 for the hardest-hit areas in the southwest portion of the city, which are indicated on an interactive boundary map found at naperville.il.us/yardwaste.

Only residents who live within the special collection boundary are asked to please place brush and tree debris on the parkway in front of their property by the morning of Tuesday, July 26 to help facilitate pick-up. Crews will make multiple passes throughout these areas this week to collect brush. If brush cannot be placed out by Tuesday morning, residents in these areas are asked to please place it on the parkway as soon as possible this week. Residents in these areas do not need to cut, bag or tie brush or prepare it in any special way for this collection.

The special collection will conclude at the end of the day on Friday, July 29. After that time, any remaining brush on private property would need to be disposed of through the City’s weekly yard waste program or through a privately contracted tree removal company.

Citywide, if a parkway tree on public property sustained damage due to this weekend’s storms, please contact Public Works at (630) 420-6095 to report it or submit a service request online. Crews will address these trees in the coming days/weeks.
