Branson, MO – The City of Branson Public Works Department will be conducting its annual Fall Cleanup beginning Monday, October 24th through Thursday, October 27th, helping Branson residents to properly dispose of large unwanted items at no cost in an ongoing effort to keep Branson beautiful.
Households in Branson Wards I, II and III can dispose of large unwanted and difficult to manage items like old appliances, furniture and mattresses, not typically picked up by residential trash haulers. Pick-up dates by ward are as follows:
• Ward 1: Monday, October 24• Ward II: Tuesday, October 25• Ward III: Wednesday, October 26• Brush and limbs will be picked up in all three wards on Thursday, October 27
Residents should refer to their most recent election voting location to determine which ward applies to their homes. Individuals voting at the Community Center on Compton Drive are in Ward I. Those who voted at the downtown Presbyterian are in Ward II; and those who voted at the Methodist Church on Highway 76 are in Ward III. A map of Branson’s city wards is also available at: http://bransonmo.gov/ImageRepository/Document?documentID=3404.
All items, including brush must be at the curb by 8 a.m. on the day of pick-up as crews will not be available to backtrack. 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.
