TREE LIMBS

As a service to the citizens of Oskaloosa, the City will pick up tree limbs and brush left by residents piled by the side of the street. This service is subject to the following conditions:
1.   Pick up will occur approximately once weekly on Mondays between the months of April and November, weather permitting. There may be additional pick up dates in those remaining months, again weather permitting. As this service is being provided by City staff during their normal working hours there may be instances when pick up will no occur due to time conflicts.
2.   All limbs/brush must be neatly piled by the side of the street for easy access by the City unless otherwise agreed to by the City. Items placed away from the street will not be disposed of by the City unless otherwise agreed to by the City.
3.   By placing the items along the street and in the right-of-way for pick up, the resident is agreeing that the City will not be held responsible for any damage to the resident's grass, yard or driveway as the City will often use a backhoe to load limbs/brush. This is why it is so important that these items be placed neatly in the right-of-way and not back in the resident's yard should the City agree to pick up items away from the street at the request of the owner. The City will not be liable for any damage to the resident's grass, yard or property resulting from the City's entry and crossing of the property.
