2024 Brush Pick-Up & Free Disposal Day Schedules

Citizens of Anniston, to the right you will find links to our Brush Pickup Schedule. NOTE: Leaf pickup does not follow the same schedule as brush pickup, unless your leaves are bagged

The calendar is colored by week according to the area of our city that the street department will be working through. The Brush map corresponds to the colored calendar; thereby showing each area our team will be in each week.

In addition, months with a red star icon are months with free disposal days. The days for free disposal will be circled in red in those months. 

For more information please contact our Public Works Department at:  256-231-7742 (Monday – Friday: 7:00AM – 4:00 PM).

Please note: If your brush was not picked up in the week our street dept. was scheduled to visit your area, please report the missed pickup on our website here: www.annistonal.gov/work-order-request-online-portal.
