Brush Truck Service
Free of Charge
The Public Works Department of the City of La Vergne provides a brush pickup service all year to the residents of the city free of charge. Residents do not have to schedule brush truck pick up; the trucks cycle throughout the city. In order to efficiently cover the entire town, the Street Department works one section of town at a time. The volume of pick-up impacts the time needed to complete each section. The Department strives to maintain this schedule; however, it may be altered during times of heavy workload or inclement weather.
There is no need to call for pick-up service.
This service is designed to accommodate routine pruning and trimming done by the homeowner, and not large scale trimming performed by other parties.
Public works posts regular updates about the brush truck's location to its Facebook Page, La Vergne Public Works.
Brush Truck Guidelines
At the discretion of the Public Works Director or his designee, crews may refuse to pickup certain brush piles that due to their size or composition, are outside the reasonable capabilities of the City’s resources, or are not in accord with the intent of this service.
For citizens who need brush disposal more often than the City provides, free brush disposal for Rutherford County residents is offered by Rutherford County (not the City) at Murfreesboro Mulching Operation, 4765 Florence Road, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The Brush Truck service goes across town over a 6 week period.
The Department strives to maintain this schedule; however, it may be altered during times of heavy workload or inclement weather. If there are any questions regarding this service or these guidelines, please call Public Works at 615-793-9891.
