The City of Prairie Village is coordinating curbside limb pick up with Republic Services and Arbor Masters.

On Tuesday, Jan. 15, Republic Services began pickup of smaller fallen limbs on resident’s regularly scheduled trash day. For regular pickup, limbs must be tied in bundles no more than four feet in length, less than 18 inches in circumference, and less than 50 pounds. Individual branches within the bundle cannot be more than 3 inches in diameter. Bundles should be placed at the curbside.

Arbor Masters is collecting larger limbs that exceed the size specified above. The limbs must be cut into sections not exceeding 10 feet in length. Limbs must be stacked in the front yard as close to the curb as possible, parallel to the street, and away from street lights, utility boxes, fire hydrants, and clear of overhead power lines. Storm debris should not be pushed into streets. This will interfere with traffic and with ongoing snow plowing operations. Storm debris piles for pickup must not be blocked by vehicles.

Storm debris should not be hauled to city parks. If you have questions, please contact City Hall at 913-381-6464.

Arbor Masters will work through the city by the sectors indicated on the map below. For the second pass, completed streets are indicated in blue. Major thoroughfares will be completed when traffic control is available.
