The city of Georgetown is providing residents with opportunities to collect tree limbs and dispose of debris following Winter Storm Mara, which covered trees and power lines with ice Jan. 31-Feb. 2.

Residents within Georgetown's city limits will be able to place tree limbs and brush debris for curbside pickup or take the items to an additional drop-off location.

“The damage to trees from Winter Storm Mara was extensive,” City Manager David Morgan said in a release. “We are setting up these additional disposal services, because we know folks throughout Georgetown have more debris than they can deal with on their own.”

Residents are asked to place limb and tree debris on the curb to be picked up the week of Feb. 27 between 8 a.m.-7 p.m. The city cannot guarantee pickup if storm-related debris is not placed on the curb by Feb. 26, per the release.

Unacceptable items include but are not limited to appliances, sheetrock and construction materials.

Residents can also drop off unlimited tree debris during set times behind the Transport Station at 1111 N. College St., Georgetown. They are asked to bring a copy of their utility bill or driver's license to show proof of residence and have fees waived, according to the release.

Collection date and times are as follows: Feb. 16-18 and Feb. 23-25 between 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Only residents of the city of Georgetown who pay Georgetown property taxes are eligible for these complimentary services, which will be paid for out of the city's general fund.

On the city's website for winter weather cleanup, there is information regarding extra tree debris collection resources, including regular Texas Disposal Systems services, additional drop-off locations and information about damage to heritage trees.

Officials are encouraging residents who experienced any damage to their home or businesses to fill out this survey. This may include the cost of spoiled food from power outages, frozen pipes, and roof or solar panel damage from falling limbs, according to the city.
