Limb & Debris Clean-up
Due to the after effects of Hurricane Beryl, the citizens have been left with large amounts of limb and branch debris. The City will assist in the clean-up efforts by picking up small and medium limbs from the curbside of homeowners in the city limits at no charge through Friday the 19th. The limbs cannot be larger than 6 feet in length. For more efficient clean up, please refer to these pictures for how to stack your limbs and branch debris.
Bagged vegetative debris, such as leaves, will be picked up by the city’s solid waste contractor, TDS, on your regular bulky trash day, the last day of pick up for the month.
