Day to get rid of limbs

GREENVILLE — Untold numbers of limbs, branches and other debris likely remain in areas of Greenville, reminders of the damage caused by a powerful ice storm.

Local residents awoke on the morning of December 6 to find approximately one inch of freezing rain and sleet had accumulated overnight, causing limbs and even whole trees to collapse.

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

The free disposal is available to Greenville residents only. A proof of residency — such as a driver’s license or a photo ID card and a utility bill — 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 run for the next week and one per house, per week after that.

Those wanting additional information can contact the City of Greenville at 903-457-3152 or 903-457-2958.
