The City of Seguin is divided into 5 zones/5 week brush collection cycles. This system allows the Brush Department to provide brush pick up to customers every fifth (5th) week. The brush schedule is subject to change due to emergencies, inclement weather, equipment failure, or manpower.

The Brush Department uses two methods of pick up:

  1. Grapple Trucks- With this service, all brush must be placed in front of your residence and away from mailboxes, and utility poles, not over any type of meter or under tree limbs or low-hanging utility lines.
  2. Chipper - This is an alley service, and staff will only chip for a 15-minute period as stated in the City's policy.

If you currently have alley service and need larger amounts of brush removed, place the brush at the street and the grapple trucks will remove properly stacked piles of brush. Grapple trucks never service alleyways due to many existing obstacles (such as water meters, gas meters, and low overhead utility lines).

The following information is provided as a reference for the citizens of the City of Seguin, who will be utilizing the brush pickup service.
