Public Works Department

The City of Brunswick Public Works Department consists of four (4) divisions that provide essential services to the community.

Public Works:
  • Keeps our city clean and neat
  • Handles our garbage and yard trash collection
  • Maintains our roads and streets
  • Maintains the city's fleet of vehicles
  • Maintains the lighting and building repairs and upkeep
  • Maintains three city cemeteries, and much more.
  • 2021 Recycling Schedule
Due to the current circumstances, Republic Services will be collecting all trash by automated trucks. In order to avoid personal contact, drivers will not be loading any trash or cans. Any trash outside of the cans will not be picked up. Also, please remember to bag all trash placed within the cans.

The following information lists those services along with the Division Supervisors and their phone numbers. Please feel free to contact any of us if you need information or assistance.
