Following this week’s winter storm, the City of New Braunfels is offering free curbside limb and branch removal to residents for a limited time, by request. This service is intended for residents that need assistance removing large branches or tree limbs due to ice accumulation during the winter storm. Those with smaller amounts of branches or other brush material are encouraged to use Green Waste bags and to set those items out at the curb for their regular weekly Green Waste collection. Green Waste bags are available at the City Recycle Center on Castell Ave., City Hall on Landa St., the Westside Community Center, and the New Braunfels Public Library on Common St.
Requests for curbside branch removal must be made by 5pm on Friday, Feb. 10, 2023, in order for the service to be free. Any requests made after Feb. 10th will be treated as a routine request and the normal service fees will be charged. In an effort to expedite the removal process, all limbs and branches should be placed at the curb in piles. Those piles should not be near, on, or under trees, poles, or other structures that would make removal difficult. Limbs should be no longer than 10 feet in length, and no more than 18 inches in diameter.
Important note: If a resident hires a contractor to cut limbs, the contractor is responsible for removal of the debris.
The curbside branch removal is scheduled to begin on Monday, February 6th. To request a curbside branch removal, contact the Solid Waste & Recycling Division at 830-221-4040. Again, requests must be made prior to 5pm on Friday, Feb. 10th as part of this free service.
