    Brush Chipping Service

    Strongsville residents have three options when it comes to handling residential brush.
    1) Residents can take brush to the transfer station on Foltz Parkway
    (drive located on east side of the Railroad tracks)
    2) Residents can bundle branches in 4’ lengths (no more than 50 lbs/ bundle) and leave out for Republic Waste on normal trash day
    3) Resident must call the City Service Department for pickup request, City will schedule for this service. Allow up to a week, if demand is great more time may lapse before pickup.   Guidelines for Service Department Pick-up Service: 
    • City will ONLY pick up at curb (do not obstruct sidewalk or street)
    • Place all cut ends in one direction
    • Keep stack pile as neat as possible (branches only, no steel, metal or debris (no stumps))
    • Branches up to 6” in diameter
    • Branches so be greater than 3’ in length
    • Normal Residential brush ONLY – no land clearing, if you hire a contractor, contractor is responsible to remove brush
    Due to Disease and insect transmission potential, wood chips are not available to the residents. All chips are composted at an EPA State appropriate compositing facility.
