City of Branson’s Fall Cleanup Set for First Week of October

The Branson Public Works Department will conduct its annual Fall Cleanup beginning Monday, October 1 through Thursday, October 5, to help residents properly dispose of large unwanted items at no cost. This is a semi-annual event which is part of an ongoing effort to keep Branson beautiful.


The cleanup service is available for individual residents of Branson, but not for businesses or commercial entities. This provides residents within the City Limits the opportunity to get rid of large unwanted and difficult to manage items like old appliances, furniture, and mattresses which are not typically picked up by residential trash haulers.


The pick-up date for Ward 1 is on Monday, October 1, Ward 2 is on Tuesday, October 2 and Ward 3 is on Wednesday, October 3.  Brush and limbs will be picked up in all three wards starting on Thursday, October 4 and continuing through October 12.


If a resident is unsure of their ward, they should refer to where they voted in the most recent election. If persons voted at the Community Center on Compton Drive, they are in Ward 1, if they voted at the Presbyterian Church in Downtown, they are in Ward 2, and if they voted at the Methodist Church on Highway 76, they are in Ward 3. A map of the city’s three wards is available on the City’s website here:  https://www.bransonmo.gov/153/GIS-Sample-Maps


All items, including brush, must be at the curb by 8 a.m. on the day of pick-up. Crews will NOT backtrack. Items not placed out for pickup by the deadline will NOT be picked up and will NOT be eligible for participation in this city service. Property owners who miss the deadline must make separate arrangements on their own to have the materials picked up.


City crews will not pick up any garbage normally collected by private refuse haulers.

Limbs and brush do not need to be bundled but must be cut and stacked at the curb in manageable 4-6’ 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, bagged leaves or household hazardous waste products.  Here is where those items can be disposed:


TIRES:  Taney County Transfer Station Call 336-6589 - $2.00 per unmounted car/truck tire.

HOUSEHOLD CHEMICALS:  Accepted by appointment only, at Branson Recycle Center, located at 601 Compton Drive, in Branson.  The center is open Monday thru Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Taney County residents only. Call for an appointment 417-337-8566.
