The City of Breckenridge and Stephens County will team up to pick up brush inside the city limits during the week of Oct. 16. Brush to be picked up must be on curbside by Friday, Oct. 13.

No brush larger than 4 inches in diameter will be picked up. Brush must be cut in lengths no longer than 6 feet long, and butt ends must be placed toward the street or curb. Uprooted trees with roots attached cannot be run through the chipper. No dirt can be encrusted on the brush.

There is no charge to residents for the pickup service. Also it is not necessary to contact either the City of Breckenridge or Stephens County to schedule a pickup because trucks will run the entire city during that week. Trucks will be running in separate sections of the city during this week, and any brush put out on the curbside after Oct. 13 will not be removed.

While the pickup service has been provided on a semi-annual basis for several years, residents can take tree limbs to the city’s convenience station at no charge throughout the year. The convenience station hours are Thursday, 2 to 6 p.m.; Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and, Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is closed Sunday through Wednesday.

For more information, contact the city offices at (254) 559-8287.
