With the last couple of snow-pocalypses we've had in Texas, a lot of trees have died. Due to the recent high winds, several trees and branches have come down. My neighbors and friends have been asking "do you want firewood"? Is there a place where we can take these fallen trees and broken-off limbs? The answer to that is absolutely, positively yes, if you live inside the city limits of Abilene.

About two years ago the City of Abilene divided its Recycling Center from its Brush and Limb Center; they are now two entirely different locations. The Brush and Limb Center is just inside the northeast side of Abilene by the loop, next to the city's Impound Center.

Anyone with a residential address inside the city limits of Abilene can drop off all tree stumps, branches, limbs, and even grass clippings at the Brush and Limb Center at no cost. You will have to show both a valid state ID card, whether it's a driver's license or a standard ID card, and some sort of proof you live inside the city limits (a copy of utility bill works).

Best news of all - if you're planting or decorating and need some good tree mulch, you are allowed to take some with you, absolutely free. The downside is you will have to move it all yourself. City employees can load it for you at $4 a yard. The "premium-grade" mulch, also known as "double grind", will cost $6 a yard if the city loads it, or $4 a yard if you load it.

The Brush and Limb Center has new expanded hours of operation. To drop off brush, limbs, and grass clippings, the center is open Monday through Friday, 8 am until 5 pm, and Saturdays, 8 am until 3 pm. The center is closed on Sundays.

For additional information call 325-677-2149. That number should be easy to remember as the Brush and Limb Center is located at 2149 Sandy Street. See the map below.
