Greeley Extends Free Tree Limb Disposal at Greeley Organic Waste Center through April 10

TreeDownSnow-News-Release

Greeley officials decided to extend the free period for Greeley residents to recycle tree limbs at the Greeley Organic Waste (GROW) Center.

The GROW Center will waive these fees for Greeley residents an additional week until April 10. Residents must have an ID with a Greeley address or other proof of residency. This is not intended for businesses doing professional tree limb pickup services.

After the large winter storm several weeks ago, officials decided to waive fees for tree limbs through April 3. However, officials decided to extend the period after feedback from the community.

April through October, the GROW Center opens from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The GROW Center is located at 1130 East 8th St., one mile east of U.S. 85 on East 8th Street.

Access to the GROW Center will change slightly as the city’s East 8th Street Improvement Project begins today, April 1. Construction will only allow one-way traffic on East 8th Street. In this case, only drivers going west, toward Greeley, will be able to use East 8th Street between Ash Avenue and U.S. 85. Officials expect construction to continue until August. During that time, signs will direct eastbound drivers to use the detour on 16th Street. Construction crews will maintain local and business access during that time. For more information about that project, go online to greeleygov.com/services/pw/projects/east-8th-street.

Those who live outside of Greeley can still use this recycling service with normal fees. The GROW Center allows for environmentally-friendly disposal of numerous types of green waste including:

  • Limbs and branches
  • Grass clippings
  • Leaves
  • Plants
  • Other designated organic materials (see the flyer posted on the City of Greeley recycling website for more details)

Prices for the recycling service vary based on the type and amount of material. Tree limbs, branches, and other brush cost $7 per cubic yard (a full-size pickup filled to bed level is 3 cubic yards). Logs larger than 8 inches in diameter cost $15 per cubic yard. The GROW Center only accepts cash payments.
