City of Joplin offers ice-storm damaged tree limb disposal; leaf program suspended until further notice

Updated:

Updated 4:20pm - Joplin has provided a free drop-off site where residents can take broken tree limbs. That's at 1702 North Schifferdecker.

It'll be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. through January 4, and will be open every day except Christmas, New Years and Sunday.

Also, the City of Joplin will start picking up large ice-storm damaged tree limbs in residential areas starting January 6. Residents are asked to cut the limbs to a maximum of eight feet and place them at the curb.

"The crews already picked up the trees that were blocking strategic streets and alleys and sidewalks and they are doing that also, but we felt like it was widespread enough that we needed to help out the residents and we needed to clean up the town," says Mary Anne Phillips, Joplin Recycling Coordinator.

For more information, including size limits, read the full news release posted below.

 

Posted December 23 at 12:10pm - NEWS RELEASE ISSUED DECEMBER 23, 2013 BY THE CITY OF JOPLIN

Due to the recent ice storm damage, residents are welcome to bring their tree limbs, branches, and live Christmas trees to the City's tree limb processing site at 1702 North Schifferdecker Avenue starting December 23 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The site will continue to be open daily except for Christmas, New Year's Day, and Sundays until January 4. The drop-off site is located 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.

The City of Joplin Street Department will also start picking up large ice-storm damaged tree limbs in residential areas starting January 6 (street crews will not be picking up piles of small branches). To aid in an efficient clean-up of the city, residents are asked to cut the limbs to a maximum of eight (8) feet and place them at the curb. City staff cannot enter private property to get the limbs. The City reminds residents to please keep tree debris piles separate from any leaf piles.

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.

Normally, Joplin residents and landlords on the City's residential trash service may be bring yard waste, for a fee, to the Republic Services Transfer Station on Old Route 66, in Galena, Kansas. However due to the volume of damage from this storm, residents are asked to bring tree limbs to the City's drop-off location.

The City's leaf pick up program has been suspended until further notice.

For more information, call Mary Anne Phillips, City of Joplin Recycling Coordinator at 417-624-0820 Ext. 501, or Lynden Lawson, Assistant Public Works Director of Operations at 417-624-0820 Ext. 560, or the Public Works Center at 417-624-0820 Ext. 564.
