The City is making collection of tree and yard debris a priority after damage caused by an Oct. 2 storm. For the next three weeks, the city will not charge extra to collect large piles of tree limbs felled during the storm. Limbs should be cut to no more than eight feet long and four inches in diameter and placed at the curb for pickup on residents' normal collection days and/or bulk collection week.
Residents with limbs stacked larger than 10 cubic yards (roughly the size of a Volkswagen Beetle car), are asked to notify the call center at 817.392.1234. This will allow the city to identify collection needs and assign additional equipment if needed.
As always, keep tree and yard waste separate from other bulky trash so that yard trimmings can be chipped into mulch and re-used.
