City of Lamar Storm Cleanup Policy
July 26, 2010
Citizens need to have limbs out to the street side within 24 hours after a storm in order to be picked up. Citizens are to place the limbs near the street but NOT in the street. Crews will then come along and pick up the limbs for disposal. Any limbs pulled out after 24 hours will be the responsibility of the homeowner for disposal.
Tree limbs are free for disposal at the Lamar landfill. However, tree limbs are not accepted at the Lamar transfer station. Due to the volume of tree limbs, this would quickly overwhelm the transfer station operation.
Tree limbs taken to the alleys will be the responsibility of the homeowner and will be subject to code enforcement. Homeowners are encouraged to dispose of limbs in the alleys in a timely manner or face code enforcement fines.
Any trees that are trimmed or taken down and are not a part of the storm event will be left and will be the responsibility of the homeowner; they will not be part of the free storm removal effort.
