Contact: Columbia Public Works - Solid Waste Division
Due to the large number of limbs felled during the recent winter storms, the Columbia Public Works Department will provide one-time special limb collection and relax length requirements for limb disposal. This will occur on your normal collection day ONLY during the week of March 18 providing the following requirements are met:
Customers have other options to dispose of limbs:
Parkside Mulch Site, Parkside Drive just off Creasy Springs RoadCapen Park Mulch Site, 1600 Capen Park DriveLandfill Compost Facility, 5700 Peabody Road
It must be stressed that customers who wish to place limbs which exceed 4 feet but are no more than 8 feet in length curbside for collection on their normal refuse collection day during the week of March 18 MUST call the Solid Waste Division at least 24 hours in advance to schedule this special pick-up. Regular refuse and recycling trucks cannot process materials in excess of 4 feet and thus will not be able to pick up oversized limbs.
We appreciate our customers taking the time to meet the requirements outlined so that we can help keep Columbia clean and at the same time allow your Solid Waste and Street Department crews to safely and efficiently serve you.
