Cities offer tree limb disposal after recent storms
ELLIS COUNTY-Following the recent severe weather, the city of Waxahachie has outlined the services provided at the Citizens Convenience Station in an effort to help local residents dispose of broken trees and limbs.
Residential customers may bring broken limbs and trees to the station, and will be free of charge with proof of residency (current water bill). Hours of operation for the convenience station are Tuesday through Saturday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Another option for residential customers is to arrange pickup of limbs with IESI, the city’s garbage collection provider.
Residential garbage customers are allowed four large pickups per year, at eight cubic yards each.
If the amount is greater than eight cubic yards, it may still be picked up, but will count toward the yearly allotment.
For example, if 24 cubic yards are picked up, one more pickup for the year is still allowed. These limbs must be cut in to pieces six feet or less in length.
The limbs must also not be placed under low hanging tree limbs or power lines, which will prevent the trucks from being able to pick the limbs up.
To arrange pickup of limbs, call IESI at 972-937-8836.
For questions regarding the removal of trees and limbs, please call the city of Waxahachie at 972-937-7330, ext. 151.
The city of Midlothian Water Tower #2 , located at 3251 Mockingbird Lane, will be open 24 hours a day now through Monday, April 25, for the drop off of limbs and brush from the storm.
No other debris may be left at the water tower - it will be considered illegal dumping.
The water tower is under video surveillance.
For any additional questions you may contact the city of Midlothian at 972-775-7614.
