Due to the abundance of debris, shredded trees and limbs previously collected will be available as mulch and dirt that can be picked up at Ranch Park for free until Feb. 29.
Only trunks, branches and limbs that residents need to dispose of due to the storm will be accepted. Debris must not be bagged. Ranch Park will stop collecting debris Feb. 25, or until capacity is reached. The location reached capacity for debris drop-off Feb. 6 and tentatively reopened Feb. 13.
Ranch Park is open for both mulch pickup and debris drop-off Monday through Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Waste Connection customers within Dripping Springs can have debris picked up on normal bulk and brush days. Debris must be placed curbside on specified days, cut 4-5 feet max in length and not bundled to weigh more than 50 pounds.
Dripping Springs declared a state of disaster due to Winter Storm Mara on Feb. 5 and extended the declaration Feb. 5 to last until Feb. 19. The disaster declaration provided the city with state and county resources for cleanup.
