2019 Branch Pickup

There is only one branch pickup scheduled for 2019.  Branches must be out at the curb by 7:00 am on April 1st.  Any branches put out after that time will not be picked up.  This is the only way to assure that the Public Works’ staff time is used efficiently.  Branches put out any other time will result in a fine.

Branches will be picked up for free, up to piles 4’ tall by 6’ wide by 8’ long, a standard truck bed size.  Any pile bigger than that will not be picked up until a fee is paid.  Fees start at $75.

Branches should be under 8’ long.  Longer branches will need to be cut before being picked up, a fee of $25 must be paid to the Village of Jerome for this service prior to pick-up.
