During the month of May, Crystal Lake's Streets Division collects small tree limbs and brush from every City street. Trucks visit each street once during the program.
Every year, residents are advised to place brush on the parkway, in front of their home, no later than May 1st. Brush must be under 6 feet in length and under 6 inches in diameter. Grass clippings and other landscape waste will not be accepted.
The accumulated brush will be ground into mulch and placed in a pile at Wastewater Treatment Plant No. 2. The mulch is available for residents, free of charge, on a first come first serve basis. You must load the mulch yourself.
