The City recently approved an ordinance that clarifies the size of brush the city will accept. Any brush put by the curb for curbside pickup on scheduled days cannot exceed 6 inches in diameter and cannot exceed 6 feet in length. This also applies to brush that is dropped off at the brush pile by the City Shop / fairgrounds.
Brush pick up and brush drop off options are for CITY RESIDENTS ONLY. This site is NOT a county drop site. You must be a city resident to drop brush off at the City Shop / fairgrounds. Violators are subject to a citation and a fine.
Dealing with brush is a time consuming, labor intensive, expensive service the city provides for residents, but it is being jeopardized by non-residents using it as a drop site. If you see something then say something – you can report violators at the time of the offense so we can attempt to curb the abuse of our brush drop off site for city residents. You can call the Black River Falls Police Department during regular business hours at 715-284-9155. If there is no answer or it is after hours then call Jackson County dispatch at 715-284-5357 Ext 180 to request a city officer.
