City workers collect limbs and brush from a residence on Atlantic Avenue.

The city is still offering free brush and limb collection until the end of February.

Those residents who live south of Lerdo Highway can expect the city to pick up limbs in their neighborhoods from now to Jan. 31, and Feb.16 to Feb. 28. Shafter residents who live north of Lerdo Highway will get serviced from Feb. 1 to Feb. 15.

Leave piles of leaves in public streets, not in alleys. Residents also need to make piles less than 10 feet in length, as well as leaving at least two feet of space between piles.

Customers who have stumps and limbs must make sure that they are smaller than 1-foot wide. The city is also asking those residents who have palm trees to set palm trees in a separate pile.

Residents cannot mix leaves and limbs, and the city is also asking for customers to not mix limbs of different types of trees. Additionally, residents cannot block walkways or gutters.

Piles that do not meet these requirements will not be removed and will be the residents' responsibility. This free service is offered only to the city's refuse residential customers. For more information, call 661-746-5002.
