Important City Code Information for Large Item/Tree Limb Collection
Large items or tree limbs may NOT be placed at the curb for longer than 48 hours before the trucks are in your scheduled service area. If items are left at the curb for longer than 48 hours, your items will be tagged and your address turned over to Code Enforcement who will then open a case for your address.

To avoid this, we stress to all residence to contact the Solid Waste Division before placing any large items or tree limbs at the curb for collection.

NOTE: When placing tree limbs or large items out, they must be placed at the curb and NOT in the street.

Basics of Tree Limb Collection

Everything over 6 cubic yards (4' x 4' x 10') will have a $1.50/minute fee.

If out of cycle, there will be a $20 service fee plus $1.50/minute fee.

Please call the Solid Waste Division to make sure a truck is scheduled to be in your service area prior to cutting your limbs.

Limbs must be no longer than 8 feet.

Face all cut ends in the same direction.

The City will pick up tree trunks no larger than 2 foot in diameter and no longer than 4 feet in length.

*In Cycle Collection: This means the trucks are scheduled to be in your area on the dates outlined in the table above.

When in-cycle, residents may dispose of up to 6 cubic yards of tree limbs per quarter without additional charge. Anything over 6 cubic yards within each quarter is subject to a $1.50 per minute collection charge.

*Out of Cycle Collection: This means the trucks are not scheduled to be in your area and must be sent on a special trip to collect tree limbs. Residents must schedule and agree to the extra charges before a truck can be sent on an out of cycle collection. Out of Cycle Collections are only done on Fridays.

Basics of Large Item Collection

Residents may call in two large item collections up to 6 cubic yards (4' x 4' x 10') per year with no additional charges.

Additional charge of $1.50 a minute may apply if the pile is over 6 cubic yards.

Residents may have more than two large item collections a year at the rate of $20 service fee plus $1.50 per minute per additional collection.

Appointments may be made by calling the Solid Waste office at 361-485-3220.

Large item collections are done Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

If you schedule online and approve charges for a large item collection, you will receive a phone call letting you know when to place your items at the curb.

Attention: Refrigerators or AC units must have the refrigerant (Freon) professionally removed before collection. You will get a sticker to place on the item once the refrigerant has been removed. The sticker must be on the item and visible for the item to be collected at the curb. 

Note: Vacant lots or unoccupied residential homes that are not currently billed for services are not eligible for tree limb or bulky item collections.
