The special pick up is for those who reside within city limits and is expected to take two weeks, officials said.
A citywide schedule for the collection will be publicized for the week of March 1 with maps and dates for the collections. Crews with landscape firms contracted by the city will start this week picking up limbs that are already at the curb, it said.
There is no special fee assessed to city residents for this limb collection.
Tree limbs should be stacked in piles and placed along the curb or pavement edge but do not need to be cut up or bundled. Other debris, such as sheetrock or flooring or material should not be included with limbs. Tree limb piles with other material mixed in such as construction debris or sheetrock will not be picked up, it said.
Contractors will not go onto private property beyond the street edge to cut up trees or limbs or move material to the curb. Those who need help cutting up or removing tree limbs should hire a private company.
Residents in Williamson County can call the Crisis Clean Up toll-free number at 800-329-8052 through March 2 requesting assistance to clean up their home and/or debris. The volunteer effort is being organized by the Austin Disaster Relief Network and Central Texas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters.
The Transfer Station, 250 W.L. Walden Drive, will also be open from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 27 for customers to drop off brushy debris and recycling.
Georgetown utility customers may drop off 3 cubic yards of brush or yard trimmings, and unlimited recyclables at no charge. Customers should bring a utility bill and matching ID. The weight limits are per load, not per customer.
Customers may continue to dispose of 3 cubic yards of brush or yard trimmings and unlimited recyclables at no charge at the Transfer Station during the week until Feb. 22-26, it said.
