Following Sunday's storm, the City reminds residents that disposal of private tree debris is the responsibility of the property owner. Parks and Recreation Community Forestry Section personnel will only clear tree debris that has fallen from trees planted in the public right-of-way between the sidewalk and curb. For debris in those areas only, call 402-441-7847, option 0, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After 4:30 p.m., tree debris may be reported to the Lincoln Police Department non-emergency number at 402-441-6000.
Residents may take tree debris at no charge to the following locations:
Residents can also haul tree debris at no charge until October 19 to Hofeling Enterprises, 2200 S. Folsom Ct. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Residents may also take tree debris to the City Solid Waste Transfer Station, 5101 North 48th St. Hours are 6:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday, 6:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and 6:45 a.m. to noon Sunday.
