Tree Debris Collection from Friday's Storm

The Department of Public Works is offering special pick-up, instructions for larger items, following the April 19 tornado in Fredericksburg.

Fredericksburg residents may place moderate quantities of tree debris from the recent storm at the curb (or shoulder) for collection by Public Works crews, at no charge, until Sunday, May 12, Doug Fawcett, Director of Public Works, said.  

Large branches, pieces of trees and tree stumps need to be hauled to the dump by the resident or the company cutting the tree down, Fawcett said. "Our service is for small debris," he said.  "Residents who are removing entire trees or large portions thereof should not place debris at the curb," he said.

Residents are asked to be careful not to place materials where they block sidewalks, fire hydrants or drainage inlets. Residents also should not mix any other materials with the tree debris.

After May 12, residents may arrange for special collection of small quantities of debris by contacting the Department of Public Works at 372-1023, 8:15 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday.  Special collection fees will apply.
