City Opens Tree Limb Disposal For Residents Due To Recent Storm

(Joplin, MO) – Due to last night’s storm, residents may have experienced broken and downed tree limbs. To help with their disposal, the City of Joplin will open its tree limb drop-off site for residents to bring their limbs and branches damaged from the storm.  The site will be open from 8:30 am to 2 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 1 through March 3.

The City’s monthly tree limb program also starts this month, and the site will be open from 8:30 am to 2 pm on the third Saturday and the Friday preceding it, March 17 and March 18. We will offer this service every third Saturday and the Friday preceding third Saturday starting this month through October.

The drop-off site address is 1702 North Schifferdecker Avenue, which is approximately six-tenths of a mile north of Belle Center Road on the west side of Schifferdecker Avenue. This free drop-off service is for Joplin residents only. Professional contractors will not be allowed to dump.

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 (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.

Please contact the Recycling Coordinator at 417.624.0820, ext. 1501 with any questions about the site drop-off. For questions about curbside pickup, contact Republic Services at 800.431.1507.
