Brush Collection

Two Brush Collection Options

Boerne Utilities customers benefit from two residential brush collection options – one by Waste Management and one by crews from the City of Boerne.

Waste Management Brush Collection

Brush collection through Waste Management takes place once per month during the first full week of the month and is conducted on the same day as the bulky collection. This means if the first day of the month falls on Tuesday – Friday, brush collection will take place the upcoming week. Customers do not need to contact the city to request a brush collection from Waste Management.

Customers should have brush at the curb by 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. If there is a high volume of customers with brush collection on a given day, Waste Management might not collect brush until the following day.

City of Boerne Brush Collection

Crews from the City of Boerne conduct a separate brush collection during the third week of the month. Customers must schedule this brush collection no later than the last business day before the third week of the month.

Customers can schedule one brush collection through the city per calendar year at no charge. Each additional brush collection will be charged at $25 plus tax on your next utility bill. To schedule a brush collection from the city:

Brush Collection Requirements

The requirements for brush collection are the same for Waste Management and the City of Boerne.

  • Brush must be cut, tied, and bundled in sections no longer than 5 feet.
  • Pieces must be no more than 5 inches in diameter.
  • Bundles must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m.

Brush is defined as cuttings or clippings from trees and shrubs resulting from regular pruning or maintenance of the property, and from dead or damaged trees or shrubs which could be considered hazardous if left standing. Brush may include small, uprooted tree stumps if dirt, rock, and debris are removed from the stump. Brush collection does not include brush resulting from lot clearing activities or from tree trimming and/or landscaping companies.
