Annual Spring Brush Pickup


Amherst’s annual spring brush pickup will begin on May 20th. Please have brush, logs and stumps out for pickup by this date. The Town will collect large unmanageable piles of logs, brush, and tree stumps only. All material must be placed out the start of that week. This is a seasonal pickup that is done once a year. No mixed piles containing lumber, concrete, railroad ties or non-organic materials will be collected. In addition, loose leaves or glass will not be picked up. Leaves, small trimmings and other yard waste should be put in containers, paper yard waste bags or bundled for collection by Modern Corporation on a weekly basis. The Highway Department will not pick up these materials during this spring brush pickup
