Limb pick-up next north of Broadway

The City of Mayfield's Public Works Department has scheduled its next limb pick up July 15-18 for areas north of Broadway. Items cannot be placed by the curb for removal more than 48 hours before a scheduled pickup, nor can any items block a sidewalk.

The pick up program is for limbs only, not entire trees. Limbs cannot be larger than 4 inches in diameter or longer than 4 inches. If a resident has a tree cut or cut down by a contractor, it is that citizen's responsibility to remove the tree limbs. There will be no more than one pick-up truck load per house. For additional information, call 270-247-1981.
