Save Time, Ask Your Contractor to Haul Away Trees

Tree Trimmings in front of house

Right now, many Plano residents are doing extensive tree trimming or tree removal because of February’s winter storm. Locals are encouraged to have a reputable contractor haul away large piles of tree materials, which may save time in the long run. 

Here’s why. The City’s Public Works staff is currently running behind schedule due to the high volume of calls received after the winter storm. Wait times are expected to become even longer as more requests come in for tree debris removal. To avoid a lengthy wait, it’s recommended you use a contractor to haul away large piles limbs and branches.

If you opt to wait for City crews, you must schedule a special paid collection for piles larger than 6 feet x 4 feet x 4 feet. Debris should be neatly stacked at your regular collection point at least 2 feet from trees, fences, utility boxes, gas meters and vehicles. Do not place piles between the fence and alley (easement).  

A few things to consider if tree material wait for collection: 

  • Large collection piles may block your driveway for an extended period of time. 
  • Grass underneath those piles may die or suffer damage. 
  • Debris piles often become a habitat for rats and mice, which may attract other wildlife.  

By hiring a contractor, it’s likely your large debris piles will be picked up much sooner.
