Due to weather, the curbside pickup for spring clean up will be postponed to Monday, April 30. Monday, April 23 is the first day residents can start placing their items on the curb. All items must be out on the curb by Sunday, April 29.

The City of Brookings annually holds a spring cleanup for the residents. This program allows the residents to place their rubbish, debris and branches in front of their home during a designated time. This program is for anyone residing within the city limits. Commercial haulers and businesses do not have free access to dumping. The City of Brookings Street Department, Park and Forestry, Solid Waste Collection and Landfill Departments work together to clean up the material set on the boulevards.

The following items will NOT be picked up from the curb:

  • Household refuse, place in green cart
  • Cardboard, place in recycling cart
  • Mixed piles will not be picked up
  • Grass/leaves, haul to the Landfill for free
  • Remodeling material/concrete
  • Paint, drop off at the paint exchange
  • Batteries/waste oil/chemicals/hazardous waste

The following items must be hauled to the Landfill for a fee:

  • Tires, fee based on size of tire
  • Refrigerators/freezers/AC, $12 each plus sales tax

Schedule for Curbside Pickup

  • SECTION 1:  Railroad tracks to 6th Street and from Main Avenue to 16th Avenue
  • SECTION 2:  Front Street to 6th Street and from Main Avenue to Western Avenue
  • SECTION 3:  6th Street to 11th Street and from Medary Avenue to Western Avenue

Brookings residents are encouraged to take advantage of the free dumping by hauling as much of their smaller items to the Landfill as possible.  This will allow city crews to focus on faster removal of the remaining large items.

The Landfill is open Monday thru Friday from 7:30 am to 4:15 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 11:45 am. The last day of free dumping at the Landfill will be Saturday, May 5. 

Tree Branch Pickup
Please remember tree trunks and branches should not be more than 12 inches in diameter and 12 feet long. They must be placed lengthwise on the boulevard (same direction as gutter line). The City of Brookings will not enter residential property to pick them up.
