Only One Week Before Annual Spring Cleanup Begins in Branson April 17, 2017
Branson, MO (April 10, 2017) – Branson’s Annual Spring Cleanup week is just around the corner and residents are gearing up for spring cleaning throughout Branson neighborhoods. In its continued commitment to maintain the natural beauty of the Branson region, the City of Branson Public Works department will provide its semi-annual pickup service beginning Monday, April 17 thru Thursday, April 20, 2017. This service is provided as a courtesy to residents within Branson city limits, helping to dispose of large, unwanted items at no cost, including brush, limbs and other items not typically picked up by residential trash haulers like old appliances, furniture, and mattresses.
Many residents also prefer to hold their yard sales during the semi-annual cleanup week. The City of Branson has released the newly revised temporary sign code pertaining to estate, garage and yard sales. Households may now hold three sales per year for a duration of four days per sale, and all require a temporary use permit which can be found online at: http://www.bransonmo.gov/309/Applications-Permits. Approved garage, estate or yard sales are allowed up to four temporary signs that meet the following Branson Municipal Code requirements:
The City of Branson Public Works Department will pick up large items, brush and limbs by ward according to the most recent election voting locations on the following dates:
Brush and limbs will be picked up in all three wards on Thursday, April 20
A Branson ward map is available at: http://bransonmo.gov/ImageRepository/Document?documentID=3404.
All items, brush and limbs must be placed at the curb by 8:00AM on each ward’s pickup day. City crews will not pick up any garbage normally collected by private refuse haulers. Please note that since pickup crews will not be available to backtrack, residents will need to make special arrangements if they miss their pickup deadline.
Limbs and brush do not need to be bundled, but must be cut and stacked at the curb in manageable 4-foot to 6-foot piles. No more than one dump truck load of limbs and brush will be hauled from any one residence. City crews WILL NOT collect tires, batteries, televisions, computer monitors, bagged leaves or household hazardous waste products. Such items can be disposed at:
