COPPERAS COVE (March 28, 2013)--Beginning Monday, Copperas Cove's new "On Call Brush Program" will require residents to schedule pickups for brush collection.
Customers with utility services through the city will be allowed three free pickups per year of up to eight cubic yards per pickup.
A trip charge of $5 per pick up, plus a $2 per cubic yard will be assessed to all non-utility account holders and pickups for residents exceeding the three authorized free pickups.
Residents may take up to two truck loads per year to the transfer station free of charge.
According to the City of Copperas Cove, the new program will reduce costs to the city and improve efficiencies.
