|Brush and Leaf Collection Through Aug. 24
|Metro Brush and Leaf Collection
Metro Public Works now uses a route system to collect brush and leaves in the Urban Services District and General Services District. If you're a resident of either of these areas, your brush will be collected automatically at certain times every year, so there's no need to call for an appointment.
To find out the dates when your brush and leaves will be collected in the coming months, see our collection schedule (below) to get your neighborhood's pick-up schedule.
When leaving brush and leaves for collection, be sure to follow these guidelines:
Brush and leaves need to be set out by the first day the trucks are scheduled to be in the area.
Brush and leaves must be set out for collection in the area where your garbage is collected - at the curb if your garbage is collected at the curb or in the alley if your garbage is collected in the alley.
Brush and leaves are collected by Metro in the Urban Services District and the General Services District but NOT in satellite / self-incorporated cities such as Forest Hills, Berry Hill, and Belle Meade. Residents of those areas should contact their city officials for the services available.
Limbs must be less than 4 inches in diameter. No stumps will be accepted.
Brush from commercial tree and landscaping services must be disposed of by the company and not left for collection by Metro.
Leaves must be bagged - paper bags are preferred but not required.
For a small fee, all Davidson County residents may take their leaves to the Bordeaux Composting Center at 1400 County Hospital Rd. Leaves may also be composted in your own backyard; visit our composting pages to find out how..
