Collection Information
• Place limbs as close to the road as possible without obstructing the roadway.
• Refrain from placing limbs and brush under trees, power lines or any other overhead utility lines. Collection material placed under such obstacles will not be removed.
• Limbs should be cut in 6 foot lengths, stacked parallel to the roadway.
• The City will not remove debris left by professional tree/landscaping companies.
• Bagged debris and limbs should be stacked separately, as they are processed differently.
• Abstain from placing bags or limbs near electrical boxes, fire hydrants or street signs, as they can be damaged by equipment (see first photo below).
• There is a 30-minute maximum collection time at each address.
