(Joplin, MO) – The City of Joplin will open a tree limb and brush drop-off site on Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15 from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm.

This is the final drop-off weekend scheduled, as the free program runs from March through October. If the community experiences a weather event that warrants another date being set, the City will announce those dates through its website and Facebook page, as well as alert local news media.

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 pickup day. Limbs must be cut to a maximum of four (4) feet and bundled. Bundles shall be no heavier than 50 pounds. The diameter of each tree limb shall be no larger than four (4) inches.
