City sets limb pickup for Monday
By The Herald Staff | 3/11/2013
Ottawa residents who need to discard limbs from trees damaged by recent winter storms will have the opportunity to do so Monday.
The city’s public works crews plan to collect limbs piled at curbside in residential neighborhoods, according to a city news release.
“Crews will make one pass through the city, beginning Monday,” Andy Haney, public works director, said in the release. “This will allow property owners and residents time to clean up their yards. However, we would appreciate you moving limbs to the street as soon as possible.”
To make collection easier with machinery — as well as limit possible damage to yards — residents are urged to stack the limbs parallel and close to the street curb, the news release said. Collections cannot be made in alleys because of space limitations, city officials said.
