The Department of Public Works is working hard to remove brush, limbs, and trees from the recent storm on Saturday. A large area of Cookeville has been affected and several brush trucks are making rounds through city neighborhoods. Due to the amount of debris it may take brush crews a while to get to your specific neighborhood. If the brush truck has passed by your home before you could bring brush to the curb it will be coming by again at a later date. The trucks collect by areas and call-ins are not necessary. Residents may also opt to bring brush and limbs to the collection center at 2103 West Jackson across from the Youth Ballfields and Sportsplex. Leaves and other small yard waste can be bagged and residents of Cookeville can request to have bagged yard waste collected by calling 520-5201 or by filling out our online pickup request form.
We urge citizens to be patient with our employees as they work to get to all the homes and businesses impacted by the storm.
Please see our General Brush and Leaf Collection Policy webpage.
Please fill out our Pickup Request Form for Bagged Yard Waste and Special Pickups (Special pickups are for couches, refrigerators, water heaters and other items too big for standard waste containers).
