Naperville: Brush Collection to Help Residents With Spring Yard Clean-ups
illi News/10225663

The City of Naperville's 2023 curbside bulk brush collection program begins the week of May 8. This program is an opportunity to dispose of large quantities of unbundled branches and tree trimmings at no cost.

The City is divided into five collection districts, which correspond with the weekly curbside garbage collection schedule. The collection cycle in each district takes one full week to complete. Residents can view the City's interactive brush collection map at to track collection progress in their neighborhood. Here is the brush collection schedule for May and June 2023:
