City issues requirements for debris pick-up

The City of Lincolnton has is­sued the following list of require­ments to which city residents must adhere in order for the city street crew to pick-up limbs, leaves, and shrub prunings.

For limbs and shrub prunings:

. Limbs and shrub prunings must be stacked as close as possi­ble to the street edge and must not impede traffic. Limbs and prunings must not be stacked in ditches.

. Limbs and prunings cannot exceed four inches in diameter and cannot be over four feet long.

. Limbs, shrubs, and prunings must not contain dirt, rock, or root material. Stumps and root systems will not be picked up.

. The city reserves the right to remove one quantity per resident per week.

. All debris must be hand stacked, and not done by machine. Debris must be easily picked up by hand for loading onto the trailer.

For leaves:

. Leaves must be stacked as close as possible to the street edge and must not impede traf­fic. Leaves must not be stacked in ditches.

. The City reserves the right to remove one quantity per resident per week.

This service is provided for resi­dents of the city to help with the maintenance of their yards and not for large-scale clearing of lots or debris left by hired professionals. The hired professional is respon­sible for removing any large items and items not hand stacked.

The city reserves the right to re­fuse pick-up for residents who do not adhere to these requirements.
