The City of Columbia would like to announce that our limb pick-up program is beginning 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 this year are as follows:
April 9th, May 7th, June 4th, July 9th, August 6th, September 4th, October 1st
Limbs are to be placed along the curb in front of your property. Do not place in the roadway. This is a curbside pick-up only! We do not pick up in the alleys.
The limb pick-up 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 7am, on the dates listed above so you won’t be missed. The City reserves the right to refuse pick-up for those properties it considers not fitting within the guidelines of the program.
Piles that do not exceed a pickup truck size load.
Limbs and branches up to 4″ in diameter
