If you live in Branson and have some stuff you want to get rid of, next week is your chance to do it.  The city’s Public Works Department will hold its annual Spring Cleanup Monday through Thursday (4/20-4/23).  Branson residents can get rid of large unwanted items like appliances and furniture at no cost. 

The pick-up date for Ward 1 is Monday, Ward II is Tuesday, and Ward III is Wednesday.  Brush and limbs will be picked up city-wide on Thursday.

All items must be at the curb by 8 am on the day of pick-up. 

Limbs and brush don’t need to be bundled, but Branson city officials say they must be “cut and stacked at the curb in manageable 4-6’ piles.”

For the pick-up of heavy items such as sofas or large appliances, residents are asked to call 243-2725 at least 24 hours before their scheduled pick-up day.

City crews won’t collect tires, batteries, televisions, computer monitors, bagged leaves or household hazardous waste products.  Check with the city to find out where those can be recycled.

A map of the city’s three wards is available online. Click on Engineering Department and then “Maps.”
