Register for BG brush collection
The window to schedule an April brush collection in Bowling Green is open through April 13.
Residents may now go online to register their address for this month’s collection! Follow the Brush
Collection Link located on the home page of the city’s website (www.bgohio.org) to complete the form.

Residents may also call 419-354-6227 to be added to the list of locations where crews will stop.
Collection is scheduled to begin on April 20. Those who do not call in or go online to register by April
13 will not be included on the collection route.
Brush should not be placed curbside any sooner than one week prior to pick up.
Brush and limbs should not be more than 6 inches diameter and 6 feet in length and placed loosely at the
curb – not bundled. Brush mixed with leaves or other yard debris will not be collected. The city, at its
discretion, will not collect entire tree(s) placed in the right of way because of work by a contractor.

For cul-de-sacs, do not place brush in the cul-de-sac green space as it may block fire hydrants, and/or
it is unmanageable for city equipment to remove.
Pickup is by ward and not by normal refuse collection day. To be included on the collection route,
residents must register their address prior to the April 13 deadline.
Residents are encouraged to visit the city’s website for more information and details. Information about
this program may be found on the public works division web page or residents may call public works at
