Brush & Yard Waste Information

Brush & yard waste collections are performed by the Sun Prairie Public Works department. Brush is collected curb-side starting in April through November. Yard waste is collected twice in the spring and twice in the fall. Brush materials are not the same as yard waste. Please review the collection information and guidelines for proper set out.

Possible Delays

Once a neighborhood has been collected, the crews will not return to that area until the next scheduled collection. Due to varying conditions, specific collection days of the week cannot be projected for each neighborhood.

Materials are not collected in one day. Collections will be conducted in the most expedient method possible, but inclement weather and mechanical problems may create delays. The collections will take place during the same weeks for the entire city. 

Collections are generally completed within one week, if you have not been picked up within that time, please call Public Works at 608-837-3050 to inform them of the missed collection. Items will only be considered missed and rescheduled if they were set out by the first day of collection.
