In accordance with Local Law # 3 of 1982, amended by Local Law # 4 of 2011, in regard to brush and leaf
collection. Brush and leaves will be collected at curbside from April 1st to November 30th on the 1st Monday of each month. Brush is defined by law as branches and trunk material from trees and shrubs grown on the premises, but the branches and trunk material must NOT be longer than four feet, nor wider in diameter than six inches. The Village WILL NOT collect cut grass, and cut grass shall NOT be placed at curbside for collection. Brush and leaves to be collected shall be placed at curbside by 7:00 a.m. on the day designated, but not more than 48 hours prior to such time. Brush and leaves from the premises are the ONLY vegetation which shall be so placed for collection.
There has been a recent problem with residents placing such materials at curbside for collection on other than the designated times. The Village D.P.W. cannot pick up these materials on a constant basis. Such piles of brush and leaves at curbside for several weeks detracts from the appearance of the Village.
Warning letters are being sent to those residents who have already done this, and it is asked that ALL
residents follow the Law in the future.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Village of Ellicottville
