City of Katy Providing Quarterly Limb Pick-Up Jan. 3

(KATY) - The City of Katy will be providing quarterly limb pick-up the week of Jan. 3. Limbs should be out by 7 a.m. on Tuesday. The Public Works crew will drive through city areas and due to the volume of limbs, pick-up may take more than one day.

In order for the city to provide this type of service, it is important that the tree limbs be cut and trimmed to the following requirements:

  • Tree limbs have to be 2 inches to 6 inches in diameter.

  • Tree limbs have to be at least 4 feet in length and no longer than 12 feet.

  • Limbs should be placed in your yard, by the curb and in not the street/roadway prior to the first day of pickup.

  • Limbs should also NOT be placed by any water meter, gas meter, hydrant or ditch.

Tree limbs that do not meet the above requirements will not be picked up. Additionally, the city will not pick up household garbage, furniture, scrap metal, appliances, automotive parts, debris, rubbish, building materials, etc. Other Pick-Up Options:

  • Any commercial tree service or any contractors cutting brush or trees shall be required to pick up and haul off their own limbs

  • For large tree trunks and stove wood length, you may call G.O. Weiss Landfill at 281-492-2558.

Texas Pride will pick up brush less than two inches in diameter if it is tied in bundles, is no longer than four feet in length and must be less than 40 pounds in weight, provided they are placed at the residence curb on regular garbage collection day.
