Tree Trimming

Please Keep Trees Trimmed

The trees in our area are what make our communities a beautiful and unique place to live. However, trees can be damaging to our garbage and recycling trucks and also dangerous to our drivers when they grow too close to driveways. For an average car, low hanging branches might not cause a problem, but our trucks are big and have an extending arm that picks up carts. We ask that trees around or above driveways stay trimmed to prevent damage to our trucks. If a tree hangs lower than 14 feet, we may not be able to get to your garbage or recycling carts in order to empty them. If your roadway or driveway is not cleared to 14’ wide, then our trucks cannot properly use their mirrors when backing, and cannot fit down your driveway.
