Residents Reminded to Take Tree Debris to Designated Facilities

In the wake of Thursday's storms, Lincoln residents are reminded to take their private tree debris to the City Transfer Station at 5101 N. 48th St. City Parks and Recreation Forestry Division personnel will only pick up limbs and branches that have fallen from trees planted in the public right-of-way between the sidewalk and curb. Private tree debris is the responsibility of the property owner.

The City Transfer Station is open the following hours:

Regular disposal charges and fees apply. To avoid an extra charge, residents are advised to "tarp and tie" their load. For more information, visit the City website at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: landfill).

Residents also can continue hauling tree debris to Hofeling Enterprises, 2200 S. Folsom Court. Hofeling Enterprises is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. There is a $10 fee for a pickup or trailer load.

The City Forestry Office is acting on all messages left on the Forestry Office voice mail. Calls are being recorded with names and residences added to the list for service. The public's patience and understanding is greatly appreciated as Forestry staff continues the cleanup effort that began with the August 6 storms.
