Cubside limb pickup reminder in Joplin



Residents do NOT have to call the City to get their limbs picked up. Crews will go throughout the City, so they need to be sure to get them to the curb.

Below is what has gone out previously, and is a reminder of the process.

1. Residents can move damaged limbs from the ice storm to their curb for pick-up by the City of Joplin Street Department. This removal service for large ice-storm damaged tree limbs in residential areas was delayed last week due to the weather, but has been restarted today (January 13).

Citizens are encouraged to place them by the curb to ensure pick up. City staff cannot enter private property to get the limbs so it is important to have them at the curb. Please note City crews will not be picking up piles of small branches, or tree trimmings done recently. This is for ice storm debris only. 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. The City reminds residents to please keep tree debris piles separate from any leaf piles.

2. 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 with . Bundles shall be no heavier than 50 pounds. The diameter of each tree limb shall be no larger than four (4) inches.
