Perrysburg charging for brush pick up after this week

PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Perrysburg residents are being told to clean up or pay up.

The city is stopping its brush collection for the year.  Residents have until May 7 to turn all of their brush in, or else they'll face a fine.

Any brush still at the curb is the homeowner's responsibility to clean up.  If the city has to come out after the 7th to pick up any extra brush, the homeowner will be fined $100 for the first hour of work and an additional $75 for every hour after.

"It's kind of unsightly to have brush out to the curb year round," said Perrysburg operations manager Greg Kuhr.  "We provide a means to get rid of it in many ways."

Residents can still bring their brush to the city compost site Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Residents will need a copy of their driver's license and brush will be inspected before homeowners can place it with the rest of the city's current brush pile.
