As we continue to clean up from the storm, we ask for your patience. Debris from your yard can be picked up as part of your regular yard waste pickup from Republic Services. However, please keep in mind the following guidelines: 

  • Yard waste must be put into small, manageable piles. This is to ensure Republic Services can get to as many houses as possible.
  • Tree limbs/branches must be less than 4 ft. long and 5 inches in diameter.  
  • If you have a contractor take down a tree on your property OR if a tree falls on your property, it is your responsibility to properly dispose of the tree. If it cannot be cut down to 4 ft. long and 5 inches in diameter - you cannot leave the tree out for pickup.
  • Republic Services is only able to spend a maximum of 20 minutes picking up at each home. If your home requires additional time, please know they will be back for pickup the following week.
  • Storm debris should never be placed in garbage bags. Instead, place storm debris at the curb in small, manageable piles.

 We also ask that you please help us keep storm drains and ditches clear of debris.
