JOPLIN, Mo. — The City of Joplin will open the tree limb and brush drop-off site, today, Friday, October 14, and tomorrow, Saturday, October 15th from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This is the final drop-off weekend scheduled, as the free program runs from March through October.

The drop-off site is located at 1702 North Schifferdecker Avenue, which is six-tenths of a mile north of Belle Center Road on the west side of Schifferdecker.

This free drop-off service is for Joplin residents only and has no load limits.

Leaves, grass clippings, trash, etc. will not be accepted, and commercial contractors will not be allowed to drop off tree limbs.

Joplin residents should also note that the City’s residential trash service through Republic Services, allows yard waste removal on their regular trash pick-up day.

Limbs must be cut to a maximum of four (4) feet and bundled.

Bundles shall be no heavier than 50 pounds, and the diameter of each tree limb shall be no larger than four (4) inches.
