To qualify for collection, limb piles must be...

  • Placed by the curb (not in the street)
  • At least 3 feet long
  • Between 0.5 and 3 inches in diameter
  • Less than 300 cubic feet per pickup (e.g., 10' wide x 5' tall x 6' deep)
  • Limbs only (no leaves, evergreens, vines, bamboo, root balls, or thorns)
Please have your limbs at the curb at 7:00 a.m on Monday morning the week of your scheduled pickup. The schedule for pickup is weather dependent and may be suspended at any time due to inclement weather. Limb chipping service is provided in spring, summer and fall for Single-Family Residences.

The City is unable to pick up:

  • Limbs on vacant lots or common ground areas.
  • Piles containing leaves, evergreens, vines, bamboo, root balls or thorns.
  • Large limb piles generated by contractors completing major tree trimming, tree removals, or lot clearing.

Limbs that do not qualify for chipping can be bundled or bagged for collection by Republic Services on your regular trash day. Bags can be purchased at the Government Center or at retail stores like Dierbergs or Menards.
