Brush and limb drop off slated for today

GREENVILLE — Local residents have a chance today to dispose of limbs, branches and brush left behind from the ice storm which struck earlier this month.

Whole trees were among the damage from the approximately one inch of ice which accumulated from the December 6 storm. While Progressive Waste Solutions has been scheduling extra pickups during the past week, it is likely large amounts of the debris still remain in the city.

The City of Greenville is offering a one-day limb and brush disposal event, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. today at the Hunt County Fairgrounds, 9800 Jack Finney Boulevard in Greenville.

The free disposal is available to Greenville residents only. A proof of residency will be required.

The site is only for the disposal of tree limbs and brush. City Staff will be available to check identification and proof of residency and direct residents where to unload and manage the site. However, those bringing the items to the site will be responsible for unloading the debris themselves.

The deposited limbs and brush will be burned next week, providing wind conditions are optimal.

Progressive Waste Solutions will still be picking up one 4 cubic yard (4’x4’x6’) per house, per week.
