Leaf & Brush Pick-Up

On Monday, April 6, the Public Works Department will resume spring brush collection.  The department will be utilizing a minimum crew size and will take necessary precautions for both their safety and that of the public.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

The City of Loveland has an agreement with Evans Landscaping for a residential yard waste drop-off program.  A voucher for drop-off can be picked up from City Hall year round.  Two times each year, the City of Loveland Public Works Department picks up brush for residents.

In the fall, the City of Loveland also offers a leaf pick-up in conjunction with the brush pick up. You may notice that your leaves have not all fallen before the leaf pick-up date comes. This is because there are many neighborhoods to reach before the first snowfall. We do our best to go back to neighborhoods one additional pass to pick up remaining leaves.

If leaf or brush piles do not comply with the below instructions and are left, or piles do not appear until after the scheduled collections, residents may go to City Hall to receive a voucher to drop-off a load of yard waste to Evans for free.

The 2020 spring brush pickup program will begin on Monday, March 23. Brush must be placed at the curb no later than Sunday night, March 22.


The following are guidelines established for the brush pick-up program:

  • Brush must be placed at the curb or edge of roadway. Do not place brush in the roadway, gutter, ditches, or on sidewalks. Do not block fire hydrants.
  • Limbs cannot exceed 10 inches in diameter at the cut section.
  • Limbs should be placed at the curb with the cut section facing the street and all limbs should be facing the same direction. This makes it easier and faster to handle.
  • No leaves, pine needles, grass clippings, or other yard waste will be collected.
  • Small twigs and sticks should be bundled with twine in bundles 12 inches in diameter. Twigs or sticks can also be placed in a container at the curb, but no other yard waste should be in the containers. Please, no loose piles of sticks and debris.
