City of Arlington and Republic Waste Team Up to Clear Tree Debris from Recent Snow Storm

The City of Arlington and Republic Waste are working together to help neighborhoods clear tree limbs and debris from last week’s snow storm. Debris removal has already started in many parts of the city, and will continue over the next several weeks.

Republic Waste will collect debris during the regular weekly trash pick up cycle. Residents are asked to place tree debris at the curb in bundles that can be managed by a single person. The more manageable the brush, the quicker it can be removed from the curb.

Residents who use a commercial tree/chipping service to cut up debris are encouraged to ask that the quote includes the haul-off and disposal fees. In addition to using commercial services, residents may haul debris to the Arlington Landfill. Landfill fees will be waived for Arlington residents dropping off tree and limb debris.

City staff from Parks and Recreation, Public Works and Water Utilities will pick up tree and limb debris as they move throughout Arlington. Although staff will clear as much debris as operationally possible, most City service vehicles are not designed to transport bulky cargo and will be unable to fully clear most debris sites. Please note: City of Arlington personnel are not authorized to enter resident’s yards to remove tree limbs.

Because of the widespread damage from such a heavy snow fall, it is expected that the clearing of tree debris will take several weeks. Residents are being asked for their patience while the City and its contractor work to remove the debris.

To report downed trees and limbs in Arlington, call 817-459-6777.
