Brush Removal Service

Brush Removal
The Brush Removal Program is for homeowners’ convenience. We have a brush chipper designed to chip limbs and branches that do not qualify as yard waste. Our equipment is not designed to grind small twigs and evergreen trimmings.

Storm Damage
After a severe storm, the Township will start brush pickup to remove debris. A severe storm is defined as a storm producing enough damage that the Township Road Crews need to clear roads and right-of-ways of trees/branches for traffic. Please follow the brush pickup guidelines.

Mosquito Abatement Spraying Tuesday September 17th

Weather permitting, Clarke Environmental, in coordination with the Village of Gurnee,  will conduct a community-wide mosquito abatement treatment during the overnight hours of Tuesday, September, 17th. The spraying will be the 4th community-wide treatment of the season.  While the spraying does not pose a risk to residents, those who are sensitive to odors or have chemical sensitivities may want to keep their windows and doors closed during the treatment.

Please refer to our Mosquito Abatement Program page for further information.
