- This event has passed.
June 24, 2016
The Henrico County Department of Public Utilities (DPU) is offering free curbside removal of tree debris created by the severe weather on Thursday, June 16.
Residents must register for the service. Orders can be placed by phone at (804) 501-4275 or online at www.henrico.us/services/storm-debris-pickup. The deadline to sign up is Friday, June 24.
DPU crews will remove only residential tree and vegetative debris, such as storm-damaged branches, limbs and small trees. Debris should be placed at the curb or near the edge of a nearby public road; it should not block drainage outlets or impede the roadway.
To be considered for free pickup:
- Debris should be no longer than 4 feet, with a diameter of 4 inches or less;
- Debris must weigh less than 50 pounds;
- Sticks and other small items should be bundled.
The free removal service will not include root balls, trunks and sections from large trees; bagged yard debris; and storm-related household waste, such as scrap wood, drywall, roofing materials and spoiled food.
A time for pickups cannot be guaranteed due to the large volume of debris created by the storm. Crews are working diligently and will respond to each order as quickly as possible.
Henrico residents also can take storm-related tree and vegetative debris at no cost to the public-use areas at Springfield Road Landfill, 10600 Fords Country Lane, and the Charles City Road Landfill, 2075 Charles City Road. Both areas are open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
