City of Galesburg Limb Clean-up

July 11, 2016 11:54 AM
The wind storm on July 10, 2016  left many downed limbs in the City of Galesburg, mainly north of Main Street. Beginning Monday, July 18, 2016, City crews will pick up tree limbs from the storm at the curb for residents located north of Main Street. The City crews will complete the pickup by Friday, July 22, 2016. Only a small number of residents located south of Main Street have tree damage, therefore crews will not be picking up limbs and branches on every street south of Main Street. For residents located south of Main Street, please contact the Street Division office at 345-3621 to arrange for pickup of limbs or branches downed by the windstorm that are too large to be picked up in the weekly yard waste pickup.
Tree limbs and branches need to be placed on the terrace no later than July 17, 2016 to ensure pick up. The pickup will not follow trash pickup schedules. Any material placed on the terrace after July 17, 2016 will not be picked up with the cleanup and will need to be hauled by the resident to the Oversize Brush Drop Off Facility located at 636 Pickard Road. Residents may stack large limbs at the curb, away from any power poles, cable boxes or fire hydrants for pick up by City crews. Tree limbs must be 10 foot in length or less. The curbside pick up service is for tree and limb storm debris disposal only. Only tree and limb storm debris from that property should be left at the curb. Tree cutting contractors hired to cut up storm debris will be responsible for total removal of debris and debris will not be picked up if placed at the curb.
In addition, the City is extending the hours of operation of the Oversize Brush Drop Off Facility located at 636 Pickard Road. Beginning, Tuesday, July 12, 2016 and through Sunday July 24, 2016, the facility will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for residents to drop off limbs and branches. This site is open to residents only, no private contractors. The Oversize Brush Drop Off Facility will resume normal hours of operations after July 24, 2016. Normal Hours of operation are Fridays and Saturdays 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Questions can be directed to the Public Works Department at 309/345-3623.
