  • All brush shall be out and ready for pick up the Sunday evening prior to pick up.
  • Collection is for residential pruning only.
  • No commercial or industrial pickups.

  • No whole tree removals of any kind.
  • Limbs shall be no greater than 8 inches in diameter and no longer than 6 feet in length.
  • Piles must be neatly stacked and no more than 6 feet by 8 feet and shall be 5 feet or less in height.
  • Piles shall be neatly stacked parallel to the road with all cut ends facing the same direction.
  • No root balls, tree stumps, lumber, fencing, decking, discarded firewood, concrete, dirt, trash or remodeling debris will be collected.
  • ONE pile per address per pickup.

The crew will not make return trips to collected areas. The village reserves the right to decline pick-up for any reason.

  • Leaf pick up will begin in the fall and will be picked up when needed until it snows.  Leaves should be in a pile in the right of way free of sticks and any other debris.  Any time other than fall, leaves should be put in biodegradable paper bags.  Please try not to pile leaves in the road as this could cause traffic hazards and be more apt to plug up storm water drains.

Christmas Trees

Christmas Trees can be left in the right of way after Christmas to be picked up or they can be dropped off at the Spruce Wood Nature Center on Park Road across from the Elementary School.

The Village of Churchville maintains the sanitary and storm sewer system throughout the Village.  If you have any questions or concerns please call the Department of Public Works (DPW) at 585-293-3366.

The Village offers assistance in helping residents remove illegal connections to sanitary sewer systems such as sump pumps or roof drains.  Please call the DPW for more information.

The current rate for one residential sewer unit is $33/month [this rate went into effect March 2015].

Sewer Inspection Requirements

When selling your home your attorney is responsible for calling the Village of Churchville to schedule a sewer inspection. The reason a sewer inspection is needed is to make sure there are no illegal connections.

The Village offers assistance in helping residents remove illegal connections to sanitary sewer systems such as sump pumps and roof drains.

Relevy of Unpaid Sewers to Taxes

After January 20th of each year, any unpaid sewer bill will be added to your Village tax bill.
