Helping your landscape recover from severe weather


I NEED TO HAVE A TREE REMOVED FROM MY YARD. WHAT CAN I DO?

ALCC recommends that you consult an arborist for proper care in removing a tree from your landscape. You can search ALCC’s membership for a company in your area that offers tree care. Scroll down to "Need help with your existing trees?" and choose "Tree Removal/Chipper Service."

I HAVE A PILE OF BRANCHES AND STORM DEBRIS IN MY DRIVEWAY. CAN YOU SEND SOMEONE TO PICK IT UP?

Most landscape companies will only remove debris from projects that they have completed. For debris pickup/removal, contact your local municipality or a waste removal company to find out what they will pick up and on which days you can put your yard waste at the curb. Many cities and towns have limits on the size of the debris that can be included in local garbage pickup.

Some waste removal companies will pick up debris. Rubbish Works offers pickup and recycling solutions for both residential and commercial customers. Your municipal web site may offer some recommendations, or you can try an online search for providers in your area. Some cities have set up special drop-off locations for storm debris; we have listed a few of them here, but it's best to call ahead to confirm.

If you are able to transport the debris yourself, you can save money and have the materials removed more quickly by taking them to a local recycling center. You can view a list of some Front Range recycling centers by clicking here.
