Temporarily closed because of flooding as of March 21, 2019.

  • The City of Leavenworth Solid Waste division operates a Brush Site for residents to drop off organic materials. The Brush Site is at 1803 S. 2nd Street and accepts tree limbs, grass clippings, straw, hay, leaves and other organic materials from general yard waste. Trees must be free of dirt and less than 12 inches in diameter. The Site does not accept roots or brush with root systems still attached. 
  • The Brush Site is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday with the last delivery being accepted at 10 minutes before 4 p.m. The Brush Site is closed from December through February and is open only on Saturdays. For the two weeks following Christmas, the Brush Site is open regular hours to accept Christmas trees for recycling. 
  • The fee schedule for dropping off materials at the Brush Site is below. Leaves and grass clippings are always accepted free-of-charge. All other organic materials are accepted according to the fee schedule. 
  • The Brush Site supplies free mulch, compost, wood chips and firewood to residents during regular business hours. Compost is leaves and grass clippings that have been allowed to break down and have been transformed back into nutrient-rich soil that is great for gardens. To pick-up mulch and compost, residents need to arrive at the Brush Site in a vehicle that can support the weight of the mulch or compost and the vehicle must have sides. The staff will place the materials requested in your vehicle with a bobcat once a waiver is signed releasing the City of Leavenworth of any liability. Residents are welcome to load their vehicles by hand with their own tools.
  • Only residents of the City of Leavenworth or contractors working for City residents can use the Brush Site. Proof of residency is required: Valid driver's license with Leavenworth address or current utility bill with driver's license.

On the 1st Saturday of each month, the Brush Site is free to City of Leavenworth residents. Commercial contractors working within the City limits of Leavenworth will still need to pay the nominal fee to dump any materials. County residents and Commercial contractors working in the County, can dispose of brush at the Leavenworth County Transfer Station, 13523 Gilman Rd in Lansing.

For additional information on the Brush Site, please contact the Municipal Service Center at (913) 682-0650.
