Tree Limb Debris Removal
When will the city start picking up Bethany residents' tree limb debris?
Monday, November 16
How long should my tree limbs be when I set them out?
No longer than 10 feet in length
Where should I put my tree limbs?
Place them in a pile parallel and within 6 feet of the curb/ driving space.
I'm a commercial business. Will you be picking up our limbs?
Unfortunately, we will not. FEMA does not reimburse the city for commercial type entities including businesses, churches and apartment complexes.
What will the route be for cleanup?
Public Works will be using the same route as we do for big trash cleanup.
How long will cleanup efforts take?
This is a major disaster recovery operation, which has impacted the entire city, and which will take significant time to complete. We will continue collecting tree debris until we determine a reasonable cutoff date is in sight based on remaining material.
How many passes will my street receive?
There is not a set number of passes. Some neighborhoods may require more passes than others depending on the volume of debris.
Is the City charging residents to pick up tree limb debris?
No. Tree limb debris removal is being done curb-side at no charge to Bethany residents.
What if I want to drop my debris off at Public Works?
Public Works is accepting debris drop off during regular hours. Normal drop off fees will apply. Fees are $7 per cubic yard.
Will you pick up my bags of leaves during debris pickup?
No. Due to strict FEMA guidelines we cannot pick up anything other than tree limbs.
What are my options for my additional bags of leaves?
Seasonal Polycarts are available for a fee of $7.50 a month per cart with a 3 month minimum.
- Customers may request an additional regular service polycart for a fee of $2.50 per month for the 2nd polycart and $7.50 per month for a 3rd cart.
- Customers may also call and request a bulk pickup which has a $25 minimum fee and additional cost is based on measured size of the items.
What if I have more than just tree limbs that need to be picked up?
Only tree limbs will be picked up at this time. If other items are at the curb with tree limbs, workers will not stop at the residence. Refer to previous questions to learn about options for other items, such as leaves or bulk objects.
