#Branch Collection


The brush removal program is a courtesy service that the City of Laredo provides to residents who have no means of hauling the branches to the landfill. Please help us maintain the service by following the program guidelines carefully. Only piles no larger no higher than 2 ½ft high no more than 4ft wide & 5 ft long shallbe collected.

 

Branch Collection Guidelines

The owner is responsible to deliver any pile larger than the dimensions given above directly to the landfill. Remember if you are contracting tree removal services to ask the contractor to take your branches from your property. Also, ask your contractor to give you proof of appropriate disposal at the Landfill. If contractor does not take your pile it is responsibility of the home owner to bring to the Landfill.

According to the City ordinance (Chapter 14-3 Section 6D), heavy accumulation such as brush, glass, broken concrete, ashes, sand, dirt or gravel, automobile frames, dead trees and other bulky, heavy none putrescible materials shall be disposed at the expense of the owner or person controlling the same by a method directed by the City. The method directed by the City is in this case, delivery to the landfill.

Code enforcement officers will be conducting visits to those homes that have huge piles sent out by the curb that could be considered safety hazards. The City of Laredo will continue providing the branch collection service but does ask residents to be patient. Solid Waste Services collects garbage from approximately 55,000 homes. Residents have the option of taking branches to the Landfill at no cost with proof of residency and a valid identification.

The landfill is open Monday through Saturday, from 8am to 5pm.
Please call (956) 796-1098 if you are being asked by a City of Laredo employee to pay for branch collection services.
