Brush pickup for the month of July begins July 30, 2018.
During scheduled brush collections, the Street Department will make only one pass through the city to pick up brush. Please have your brush by the front curb, but not in the street, by 7 a.m. Monday. Brush will not be picked up in alleys and the piles should be trash-free. Crews cannot access the piles if blocked by vehicles.
Remember, the Street Department does not pick up grass clippings. Residents may:
- Leave their grass clippings on the lawn, which will quickly decompose, adding nutrients to back to the soil.
- Make a compost pile from grass clippings, leaves, twigs and other vegetative waste to turn it into a fertilizer.
- Dispose of them at the Goshen Environmental Center, located just west of the intersection of N. Indiana Avenue and CR 19. Free drop off of brush and leaves is available to residents of Goshen (proof of residency required) and other items like grass, yard waste, garden waste, and root balls can be dropped off for a price (ranging from $1 to $40 depending on the amount of material being dropped off).
For any questions about brush pickup, please contact the Street Department at 534-9711.
