Public Works crews provide free branch collection for fallen branches and brush May through November. “Branches” means any tree limb, stick or brush larger around than a pencil. Anything smaller should be placed in yard waste bags for disposal.
Branches must be placed in front of the home in the city right-of-way, not in an alley, and must be placed away from fences, overhanging limbs, power lines and water meters.
Only one branch pile per residence, and can be no larger than 10 feet-length x 4 feet width x 3 feet height.
