Brush Dumping Policy

The City of Wood River issues punch cards for brush drop off only. Residents will only be allowed to dump brush once a month. If multiple trips to the dump facility are necessary for a single project, the City will verify that the brush is coming from the residence in question before allowing the additional brush. This policy does not affect grass and leaf drop off.

Cards will be issued at the dump facility upon a resident’s first drop off after the first of each year. Any subsequent brush drop off for that resident will require the presence of the punch card. If you have any questions feel free to call Public Services at 251-3122.

The City Dump/Compost Facility is open only on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8am to 4pm and Sundays noon to 4pm. Dumping charges vary. For more fee information, please call 618-251-3122.

Curbside brush pick-up is also available to citizens for a $50.00 per truck load fee. For more information on how to schedule a pick-up, please call 618-251-3131.
