Due to the recent ice storm, the City of Oskaloosa will be picking up downed limbs that have been moved to the roadside. Please have your tree limbs only piled at the side of the road by next Monday December 7, 2015 as this will be the last day for pick up for the winter.

Also please be aware that the pile of tree limbs must be accessible by the City's backhoe. Due to the fact that heavy equipment is being used to pick up limbs the City is not responsible for damage to your yards or driveways and by placing your limbs on the City's right-of-way for pick-up by the City of Oskaloosa you agree to these terms. Thank you
