The City of Katy provides tree limb pick up for the citizens during the first week only of January, April, July and October. The crew will start picking up on Monday and will cover each and every street working until the entire City is picked up. In order for the City crews to provide this type of service, it is important that the tree limbs be cut and trimmed to the following requirements:
- Tree limbs have to be 2 inches to 6 inches in diameter.
- Tree limbs have to be at least 6 feet in length and no longer than 12 feet.
- Limbs should be placed in your yard, by the curb and NOT in the street/roadway prior to the first day of pickup.
- Limbs should also NOT be placed by any water meter, gas meter or hydrant.
Tree limbs that do not meet the above requirements will not be picked up by the City. Any commercial tree service or any contractors cutting brush or trees shall be required to pick up and haul off their own limbs. The City will not pick up household garbage, furniture, scrap metal, appliances, automotive parts, debris, rubbish, building materials, etc.
For large tree trunks and stove wood length, call G.O. Weiss Landfill at 281-492-2558. Republic Waste will pick up brush less than 2 inches in diameter if it is tied in bundles, is no longer than 4 feet in length and must be less than 40 pounds in weight, provided they are placed at the residence curb on regular garbage collection day.
