The January Quarterly Curbside Brush Collection will begin Monday, January 4 in Zone 1. The January collection includes the collection of whole Christmas trees (free of tinsel and ornaments). To ensure the collection of brush and Christmas trees, residents are asked to place materials at the curb by 7 AM on the Monday of your designated collection week. Each zone will be cleared by the end of the designated week - not necessarily on Monday. Crews cannot return to pick up items placed out late. If snowfall occurs, residents are asked to clear snow from curbside materials to ensure crews are able to find items for collection. Complete details regarding the Quarterly Curbside Brush Collection Program can be viewed at portagemi.gov or by contacting the Department of Public Works at 329-4444.
