City of Joplin reopens limb drop-off area for citizens, related services update

Updated:

POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE CITY OF JOPLIN

City of Joplin crews continue to pick up ice storm damaged tree limbs and leaves. The City appreciates the public’s patience and cooperation dealing with these cleanup projects.

The following is an update of the various programs.

Curbside pickup of ice storm damage tree limbs continues. City crews are actively proceeding through the City to remove the piles for residents. Residents do NOT need to call the City for pick up service. Also, please do not pile limbs on top of the leaf piles.

Drop-off site reopens this week. The City will reopen the limb drop off site for one last time during this ice storm cleanup project. The drop off site, located at 1702 North Schifferdecker Avenue, will be open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 29, 30 and 31; and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 1. Residents can also bring their live Christmas trees to that site as well during those times. 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.

Christmas tree drop-off sites are open until Friday, January 31 at Humphreys Park, McClelland Park and the Public Works Center, 1301 West 2nd Street. Please be sure to remove all decorations from the trees before leaving them at these locations. Signs will direct residents to the drop-off area.

City’s leaf pick up program has resumed. As this program comes to a close, additional information will be released regarding alternatives for those residents who were missed.

For more information, call the Public Works Center at 417-624-0820 Ext. 564, or Lynden Lawson, Assistant Public Works Director of Operations at 417-624-0820 Ext. 560.
