The City of Brookings every year has held an annual spring clean for the residents. This program allows the residents to place their rubbish, debris and branches in front of their home during a designated time period. This program is for anyone residing within the city limits. Commercial haulers do not have free access to dumping. The City of Brookings then pools the Street Department, Park and Forestry, Solid Waste Collection and Landfill Departments together to clean up the material set on the boulevards.
The city will canvass the town one time only. All items must be placed at the curb. There is no alley pickup. Please make sure everything is on the curb to help reduce any damage from the use of heavy equipment.
