Limb Pick-up / Chipper Truck Schedule

The City of McDonough provides service limb chipping. We run a truck throughout the city on a weekly basis. We have the city divided into four zones or routes. The guideline for limb chipping is below:

  • Limbs need to be no larger than 4 inches in diameter and cut less than 4 feet in length
  • All limbs have to be on the Right-of-Way. We cannot come onto private property to pick up limbs
  • We do not pick up leaves, stumps, root balls, logs (larger than 4 inches), grass clippings, dirt, rocks, lumber, limbs with metal fence tangled in it, etc.
  • When there are interruptions due to weather, mechanical break downs, scheduled holidays, etc., we will work to get back on schedule as soon as possible.
  • We typically run our route Monday through Thursday with Friday being a make-up day
  • On large piles we will spend 15-20 minutes at each stop. If we cannot handle the pile in the allotted time we will attempt to come back on Friday if the schedule will allow.
  • The City is not responsible for removing limbs that have been cut down by a contractor. The contractor or homeowner will be responsible for disposable of the limbs if the homeowner has a contractor cut the limbs.
  • All leaves are to be bagged and placed curbside for pick up by the Garbage service before 7 am on their specified service day.

Call 678-782-6272 between the hours of 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday for questions or concerns regarding limb pick-ups.

The section of McGarity Road that is in the City Limits is Serviced on Tuesday.
