(Joplin, MO) – Starting this month, residents will now have two days to drop their limbs off at the City of Joplin’s free monthly tree limb and brush drop off service. The drop-off site has traditionally been open on the third Saturday of the month, and the City has added the third Friday for residents to utilize this program.
The site will be open from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm on Friday, June 18 and Saturday, June 19. The City will continue offering both days for the program through October, when the service ends for this year.
The drop-off site is located at 1702 North Schifferdecker Avenue, six-tenths of a mile north of Belle Center Road on the west side of Schifferdecker.
This free drop-off service is for Joplin residents only and has no load limits. Leaves, grass clippings, trash, etc. will not be accepted. Commercial contractors will not be allowed to drop off tree limbs.
Joplin residents should also note that the City’s residential trash service through Republic Services allows yard waste removal on their regular trash pick-up day. Limbs must be cut to a maximum of four feet and bundled. Bundles shall be no heavier than 50 pounds. The diameter of each tree limb shall be no larger than four inches.
