Addison Township offers a brush program as a service to residents in the unincorporated areas. The Township has not been directed by DuPage County to offer these services and the Township is not reimbursed by the County for the cost of supplying these services. Therefore, we ask for you cooperation in following the guidelines.

We have a brush chipper designed to chip those limbs and branches that do not qualify as YARD WASTE. Our equipment is not designed to grind small twigs and evergreen trimmings. Your garbage service will take yard waste and roots for nominal cost. IF IT CAN BE PUT INTO A BAG, THEN IT IS YARD WASTE.

For 2017, brush pick-up begins the week of April 10th through April 14th, May 8th through May 12th, September 11th through September 15th and October 9th through October 13th; and it takes approximately one week per month to pick up the Township.  Branches/brush MUST be on parkway by 7:00 A.M. scheduled pick-up.

IT IS EXREMELY IMPORTANT for the homeowners to follow the guidelines issued by the Highway Department in the spring of each year. These guidelines are for the protection of our equipment and in the interests of worker safety also helping to expedite the program.
