What are residents to do with their brush?

Disappointed with city services. Last week, the Alpena news published the yard waste pickup schedule. For brush and bagged materials.

My understanding of the schedule, is that they would be picking up brush piles each Monday, east of Ripley Blvd. so I contacted the DPW, and they stated that their would only be one pick up of brush this season.

My question, as a taxpayer, what are the residents of the city of Alpena suppose to do with their brush? Also, the streets haven’t been swept, with all the rain we have had, to save water in the vacuum trucks.
