Brush pickup begins March through October of each year.  Maximum of two (2) loads per month. We will pick up brush up to 10” in diameter & 10’ in length. (No firewood lengths). Hedge trimmings, stumps, roots & dirt balls are not accepted.  Brush should be stacked parallel to the road & the back edge of the pile should be no farther than 3 ft. from the road. NO BAGS ACCEPTED.  Do not put brush piles out more than 10 days in advance of your scheduled pick up date.  Please do not mix loose leaves & brush together as each of these requires a different piece of equipment for collection.  ITEMS MIXED TOGETHER WILL NOT BE PICKED UP UNTIL THEY ARE SEPARATED.


Brush  must NOT be placed on a road that accommodates vehicle traffic, piled on top of a hill or embankment or behind or near obstacles: such as hedges, trees, fences, mailboxes, poles and sewers. If your property abuts a public as well as a private road, brush must be placed adjacent to the private road & not more than 3’ from the edge of the roadway adjacent to your residence. (Ordinance #1288.)  If your property can only be reached by a private driveway, we will collect your or brush if your driveway can accommodate our equipment (which is 34’ long & 14’ high) & has an adequate turnaround area (either a circular drive or a square pad which is a minimum of 70’ X 70’.) If you wish us to come up your driveway we will need to issue a letter of permission. (Ordinance #1442). The City DOES NOT COLLECT grass, lawn/hedge clippings, sweet gum balls, refuse, trash, old appliances. Please make arrangements for disposal. All brush must be set out for pickup by 7:00 am., Monday morning of the scheduled week.


The City has contracted with Hansen's Environmental Wood Services to haul off all collected composting material. In return, Hansen's is offering Ladue residents a discounted rate on bulk materials. Please see the attached price sheet. As always, Ladue residents are free to obtain mulch and compost materials from any vendor that meets their needs.
