BRANSON, Mo. – The City of Branson holds an annual Fall Cleanup event each year in an effort to keep the city clean. However, due to COVID-19, the event was called off in 2020. To ensure that Branson stays clean and orderly, the city remains determined to continue the annual cleanup this year beginning on Oct. 4.
To help residents properly dispose of unwanted items that most trash companies will not remove from a property, the City of Branson Public Works Department will offer its services free of charge. Services will only be available to Branson residents, excluding businesses, and household items must be on the curb by 8 a.m. on the days listed for pick up.
Tree limbs, brush and other shrubbery must be on the curb by 8 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7. The city asks that residents cut and stack brush into 4 to 6 inch piles and said that one dump truck load per household will be allowed for removal.
The city will not pick up normal trash bags, but will pick up items such as appliances, mattresses, furniture and other items that companies will not normally remove. For bulky or burdensome items, residents will be asked to use the ‘Report-An-Issue’ form on the city’s website.
Crews will not remove bagged leaves, electronics, tires, batteries, cleaning supplies or any other household waste items. Items not taken by city crews may be disposed of at the following locations:
Electronics will be taken by Tantone Industries: 1629 MO-76, Branson, Mo. 65616
