Several Options Available for Those With Tree Debris
Lincoln residents with tree debris as a result of this week's storm have several options for disposal:
- Through a promotion with KLKN-TV, Hofeling Enterprises, 2200 S. Folsom Court, will accept tree debris at no charge through 5 p.m. Friday, February 5. (Mention "channel 8" when dropping off debris). Hofeling is also still accepting Christmas trees at no charge. Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
- Residents can haul tree debris to the City Transfer Station at 5101 N. 48th St. Regular disposal charges and fees apply. To avoid an extra charge, residents are advised to "tarp and tie" their loads. The facility is open from 6:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on weekdays; 6:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays; and 6:45 a.m. to noon Sundays. More information is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: landfill).
- Residents can cut tree limbs and bundle them into four-foot lengths and leave them for their waste haulers to pick up.
