2009 Branch pickup program begins Monday
The Springfield Department of Public Works will begin its annual branch pickup program on Monday, April 6, 2009. The program traditionally runs through the end of November. Residents are asked to place branches on the parkway in front of their homes, the space between the sidewalk and curb. Public Works crews will begin picking them up on Monday. It usually takes about 5 weeks for crews to completely go from one end of the city to the other.
To help residents better determine when their branches might be picked up, a new branch pickup map has been placed on the city’s website HERE. The map is color coded to identify areas of the city in which crews have just completed pickup, are working presently, and where they will go next. It will be updated as crews move throughout the city.
