Metro Public Works picks up brush in our neighborhood four (4) times a year. Here is the most current Brush Collection Schedule (Poplar Creek Estates is in Area 9).
You may place brush out in front of your house for collection up to two weeks before the scheduled date. Typically, you can expect Public Works to pick brush up within a week to ten (10) days of the scheduled date. You can sign up to receive an email reminder from Public Works about upcoming brush collection dates.
When a brush collection date is coming up, take a moment to look around your backyard and the common area behind your house and pull out that ugly old pile of branches that's been collecting for years! Drag it out to your front yard and make your property taxes work for you!
In the Spring, why not rake up those leaves from last Fall? You can bag them using paper bags (no plastic - see above photo) and have your city haul them off for you. (Hart Ace Hardware sells them cheap!) Just leave them at the curb.
So let's get busy and thanks for helping keep our neighborhood beautiful!
