Annual Curbside Tree Limb Collection in April

 

April 5, 2013 - The annual citywide curbside tree limb collection takes place this year from April 8 through 19. Bundled Limbs will be picked up at residences north of 9th Avenue April 8 - 12 and south of 9th Avenue April 15 - 19.

Place your bundled tree limbs out at curbside by 7 am on the Monday of your scheduled collection week for pick-up some time during that week. Limbs in yards, alleys and on private property will not be collected in this special collection.

Limbs must be cut into lengths no longer than six feet, and no limb may be larger than six inches in diameter and placed into bundles no larger than three feet in diameter in the gutter, off of the sidewalk, and no closer than two feet from any fence, building or any obstacle that would interfere with the collection of the pile. Leaves, trash or other debris will not be accepted during this special curbside limb collection. Non-bundled branches and large piles will not be collected.

Another option for branch and limb disposal other than the curbside collection is taking limbs to the City of Longmont’s Waste Diversion Center located at 140 Martin Street. Open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:30 am to 4:45 pm and Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8:30 am to 5:45 pm. Closed on Sundays. There is no charge if you take your City of Longmont residential utility bill showing that you are a city of Longmont solid waste customer. Be prepared to also show identification to match the utility bill.

Branches placed out after the collection and that do not comply with the requirements for bundling and placement will not be collected and will be the responsibility of the tenant and homeowner for disposal. Code Enforcement staff will inspect neighborhood after the scheduled collections and may issue notices or violations for piles left in the street.
