Brush Drop Off
The City of Stow provides a convenient location for STOW residents to drop off their brush yard waste that is the result of yard work done in their own yards. Periodically, this material is ground up by the City and made available to residents as a mulch-type material. The material is also used on City grounds. This program reduces the amount of waste that goes to the landfill. For more information, click here.
