Branch Pickup

    City-Wide Branch Collection

The City of Springfield’s 2019 fall branch pickup has now concluded. The next branch pickup will occur in the spring of 2020.

As a reminder, small branches may be broken up and put into yard waste bags or plastic yard waste containers for pickup by Republic Services, the city’s yard waste contractor. This service goes until the end of December, 2019. Branches are not allowed on boulevards.

    Residential Branch Drop Off

Residents may drop off branches to Evans Recycling with proof of residency until the end of March 2020. This service is not for commercial contractors but for city residents only. Evans Recycling is located at 2100 J. David Jones Parkway and is open Monday-Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, 7:00 a.m. – 12-noon. Contact number is 217.391.0886.

    Branch Piles Are NOT Considered Yard Waste

As a reminder, the city's branch pickup is a DIFFERENT program from the city’s yard waste pickup program that is now until December 31. The branch pickup program only occurs twice a year.
