RESIDENTIAL LIMBS AND BRUSH PICKUP
The City's residential limbs and brush collection will be conducted on the first Monday of the month through September.
Only limbs and brush without root balls will be collected. Limbs and brush are not to be placed adjacent to the street earlier than three (3) days prior to the scheduled collection, nor after the street has been collected. An effort should be made by all to keep our community looking neat. Limbs must be stacked in piles with larger sections of limbs facing the same direction.
A three cubic yard limit has been established for each residence per pickup. That is equal to a pile three feet wide by three feet high by nine feet long.
Brush and limbs in excess of the three cubic yard limit will not be collected and are the responsibility of the property owner to dispose of.
City crews will make only one trip through the City each month and, once your neighborhood is collected, will not return until the next regularly scheduled collection. You are prohibited from putting brush, limbs or debris on the street. IF YOU HAVE YOUR TREES TRIMMED, YOUR CONTRACTOR MUST REMOVE THE LIMBS/BRUSH.
