Brush Collection & Drop-Off

The Public Works Department will be picking up brush, limbs, and branches starting Monday, October 17th, and will continue throughout the Town until finished.  All yard waste must be at the roadside by 7 a.m. on the first day of collection.  There will be no second collection and no callbacks.

Roadside collection crews reserve the right to not pick up excessively large volumes of brush and improperly piled materials. Brush you collect before the first day of pick up needs to remain out of the rights-of-way to assure safety and prevention from wreaking havoc on the storm water systems.

Town of Ithaca and Village of Cayuga Heights residents may drop their own yard waste and leaves off at the Public Works Facility at 114 Seven Mile Drive, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. through 2:30 p.m. year round. If you have questions, call (607) 273-1656 between 6:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. or email
