Branch Pickup

2024 BRANCH PICK-UP Schedule

April 1, 2024 through October 14, 2024.

The Village of Frankfort is pleased to announce significant improvements to its longstanding brush collection program, which has been a vital service for residents since the early 1980s. This initiative, initially established to provide a convenient and eco-friendly disposal method for trimmed or fallen branches, has evolved over the years, growing in scale and demand.

Beginning April 1, 2024, the Village will transition to an east and west brush route collection schedule.

New Brush Collection Schedule:

  • East Brush Route: First and third Monday of the month (Residential areas east of Route 45)
  • West Brush Route: Second and fourth Monday of the month (Residential areas west of Route 45)
If there happens to be fifth Monday in a particular month, no brush service will be provided. If a holiday falls on Monday, branches will be picked up the following day.

Branches must be placed out by 6:30 a.m. on scheduled pickup days, as the brush crew will run their route only once.

Significant storm occurrences may result in schedule postponement until a full cleanup is completed.

The Public Works Department offers the following guidelines and helpful hints for tree and tree limb removal in the Village of Frankfort:

General InformationThe Village of Frankfort maintains the parkway trees throughout the community. A parkway is generally defined as the area between the sidewalk and the road. Trees located in this parkway are maintained by the Village of Frankfort. The Public Works Department will provide periodic pruning of the branches on these trees to remove low level branches which cause problems with pedestrian and vehicular traffic. In addition, Public Works will prune trees that inhibit sight lines at intersections and roadway signage such as stop signs. Low level branches also cause problems for trucks when sweeping streets and removing snow and ice from roadways.

Storm Related DebrisDuring a wind and/or rainstorm, tree limbs and branches and in some cases, may come down due to the storm. In a minor event where there are isolated pockets of damage the Public Works Department will remove the limbs and branches that fall from parkway trees ONLY. In addition, any limbs, branches, or trees that fall from trees on private property but are blocking the roadway or alley right of way will be removed off the right of way by the Public Works Department. In no instances will the Village of Frankfort remove tree limbs, branches or trees that fall from private properties. Local ordinance does allow citizens to remove storm related debris from backyards, side yards and front yards in minor storm events. (Please follow Branch Pick-up Guidelines)

Branch Pick-up GuidelinesNo full trees will be accepted and/or anything cut by anyone other than the homeowner. Only branches 1 inch in diameter or larger will be collected (smaller materials do not go through the equipment properly). Branches over 12 inches in diameter must be cut into 18-inch lengths and will be picked up by a separate truck later in the day. Please stack all branches neatly, with cut ends facing the street for easy removal by the Village of Frankfort. Residents who notice a parkway tree limb/branch hanging or down from a storm should contact the Village of Frankfort Public Works Department at (815)469-2177.
