The City of Columbia City would like to announce that our limb pickup program will begin soon. This program has been initiated as a means to dispose of limbs and branches from storm related events and small pruning projects. Dates for 2019 are the following:
April 8, May 6, June 3, July 8, August 5, September 3, October 7
Limbs are to be placed along the curb in front of your property. Do not place in the roadway.
Curbside pickup only! We do not pick up in alleys.
The limb pickup program is limited to City limits only. There will be one pass only in an area. Please have your limbs out and ready for pickup by 7:00 A.M. on the dates listed above so you will not be missed. The City reserves the right to refuse pickup for those properties it considers not fitting within the guidelines of the program.
