Salisbury asks for patience during debris collection

SALISBURY – The Salisbury public services department is collecting a high volume of yard and limb debris following recent storm damage. Workers are attempting to remove all debris in a timely manner. However, residents are asked to remain patient as the collection process may take a number of weeks before the regular schedule resumes.

Yard debris should be placed on the curb for pickup. Limbs should be cut into six-foot lengths or shorter, and stacked neatly at the curb, away from water meters, fire hydrants, utility poles and guy wires. Other debris should not mix with limbs.

All other yard debris must be bagged or in a container and placed on the curb, separated from curbside trash, household garbage and recycling materials. Do not put yard debris in green roll out containers.

Grass clippings must be bagged or placed in containers for collection.

For more information about yard, limb and garbage collection, please contact public services at 704-638-5268.
