I have been asked to response to your posting concerning the cityís tree limb set out guidelines.
Rather than charge everyone for use of a large volume tree service the city has chosen to provide a limited program which allows us to maintain a reasonable residential service charge of $11 per month. Cities that do provide a large volume tree service have rates that are in excess of $16 per month. They also charge an additional fee for amounts above the allowed set out. I am hoping that you would agree that it is better to require those that generate large amounts of wood waste pay for disposal on an individual basis rather than require everyone to pay for a program that they donít use.
There is a way to dispose of your unwanted material free of charge, you may take it to the following facility,
If you donít have a truck, Home Depot and Lowes rent by the hour. These trucks may be taken to the transfer station without a problem.
