CITY OF HAYS
Please be advised that beginning Monday, August 19, Hays city crews will be doing a one-time collection of downed tree limbs as a result of the recent wind storm.
All limbs are to be placed curbside. Limbs will not be collected from alleys. Please do not pile limbs on sidewalks or streets.
Collection will start Monday, August 19 and continue until a sweep of the city is complete.
Crews will not come onto private property to collect limbs. If a resident has a large tree or limb on their property, they can utilize the services of a professional tree trimmer to either have the tree removed or moved to the curb.
As a reminder, city residents can haul their limbs to the Ellis County Sanitary Landfill for disposal free of charge. Limbs can’t be taken to the city compost site.
Landfill hours are Monday-Friday 8-5 and Saturday 9-4. Limbs CANNOT be taken to the city compost site.
Any questions should be directed to the City of Hays Public Works office at (785) 628-7350.
