Branch pickup is scheduled for the weeks of August 9, and November 8. Have the branches on the street by early Monday morning of those weeks. Branches left out at other times will not be picked up, are unsightly, and can become a refuge for vermin. Please be considerate and only put branches out on the days indicated or make private arrangements for their dislposal. See https://www.springfield.il.us/Departments/PublicWorks/branchPickup.aspx for further details and instructions on what is acceptable for these city pickups.
