Ordinance Related to Watering and Sprinkling of Outdoor Vegetation

Effective July 11, 2007, the City of Thorp has a new ordinance in effect that prohibits the sprinkling of lawns and other outdoor vegetation between the hours of 10:00am and 6:00pm. Permits to water newly seeded or sod lawns between 10:00am and 6:00pm can be obtained, conditions permitting, for a 2 week period. Watering by hand and children's water toys are allowed at all times. Complete watering bans are still possible in extremely dry conditions.

City of Thorp Brush, Leaf & Christmas Tree Collection Information

Collection of curb-side brush will be the first Tuesday of each month from April through October. Brush piles should be of manageable size, neatly stacked, and cut to lengths of approximately 4 feet.

Collection of natural Christmas trees deposited at curb-side that have had all decorations removed will occur on 2 days each January. Anticipated dates in 2017 include Tuesday January 3 and Tuesday January 10.

Curb-side collection of leaves will occur during an approximately 2-week period each fall. Dates depend upon peak leaf shed. Leaves should be raked to and left on the curb--not raked into the street or gutter. Additional leaves collected after pick-up has ceased can be dropped off at the city composting drop-off site across from City Hall.
