The City of Farmington is planning a citywide pickup of limbs and tree debris caused by strong storms that have recently moved through the area.
According to Public Works Director Larry Lacy, city crews will begin their route at 7:30 a.m. each morning, working ward by ward, beginning Aug. 14.
“Please have limbs and tree debris at the curb or in the alley,” Lacy said. “We will not take anything your trash service takes, such as trash bags, cardboard boxes, or items in garbage cans.
“No lumber, shingles, siding, or construction waste products will be picked up. If you can, have trees cut into 10-foot pieces so we are able to load them.
“If we cannot get through an entire ward on the specified pickup date, we will continue where we left off the following day. Please check to see what ward you are in, and leave all limbs and debris by the curb on your specified morning, no later than 7:30 a.m. There is no call-back.”
Limbs and debris will be picked up on the following schedule:
Ward One: Pickup begins Monday, Aug. 14
Ward Two: Projected pickup to begin Thursday, Aug. 17
Ward Three: Projected pickup to begin Tuesday, Aug. 22
Ward Four: Projected pickup to begin Friday, Aug. 25
As always, city residents may, at their convenience, use the yard waste disposal site on Pimville Road, located approximately one mile west of Bray Road, for the disposal of limbs and yard waste.
At this time, the gates are being left open 24 hours a day.
