Special News

  • The Village of Prairie Grove Public Works Department has scheduled Resident Brush Pick Up as follows: On May 7th & May 8th, Village Staff will be out with the truck and chipper collecting branches left in piles on the front curb of residents' properties. They will begin picking up brush early in the morning on Wednesday, May 7th, so all brush must be out prior to 7:00 am on the 7th. This program is intended for larger tree branches resulting from trimming or storm damage and is not for the disposal of whole trees. No stumps or roots will be taken. All brush must be a minimim of four feet in length and between two to eight inches in diameter. Small or thin branches can cause the chipper to jam and creates a safety hazard. Please be aware that branches will be left behind if they cannot be put through the chipper safely. All other yard waste (leaves, clippings, small brances, etc....) should be placed in an acceptable waste bag with a yard waste sticker (yard waste stickers are available for purchase at the Village Hall) and left at curbside with your normal trash collection by Groot.
