During the month of May, the City typically provides a curbside collection service for brush, white metal/metal, and leaves. During this program, we typically also provide one week of free disposal to Brewer residents at the Brewer landfill, during which time, residents may bring in bulky waste to the landfill for disposal. Information on Spring Cleanup’s program is usually posted in April and can be found here.
Twice a year, the City gives residents of Brewer the opportunity to clean up leaves from their property and have them hauled away at no charge. The spring collection takes place at the beginning of May, along with the Spring Cleanup program, and again in mid-November. Click here for this fall’s program information.
Christmas Tree Recycling
The City of Brewer is again offering the convenience to residents of dropping their Christmas trees off at the Brewer Auditorium inside the lower gate off Wilson Street anytime on or before Sunday, January 25, 2015. Free disposal of Christmas trees will also be available at the Brewer landfill, during regular business hours starting December 30, 2014. Landfill hours (every Tuesday morning between 7:00am – 11:30am and the first and third Saturday of the month 7:30am – 2:00pm). Before dropping off trees be sure to remove all decorations and the tree stand, and please do not wrap the tree in plastic. The regular curbside trash pickup will not take Christmas trees nor will the City crews be collecting the trees curbside. We thank you for your cooperation and wish you all a safe and joyful holiday season.
Once a year, the entire brush pile at the landfill is ground up by a contractor, at no cost to the City, and the material is all reused.
Special Curbside Holiday Rubbish Program
The City will run this special collection program for two consecutive weeks: the week starting Monday, December 29, 2014 and the week starting Monday, January 5, 2015. For more information click here.
