Lilburn’s public works department is making its way around the city with the chipper. Residents are warned it could take a couple of weeks to get to every city street due to the enormous amount of debris left by the storm. Here are the requirements for limbs the chipper can handle.


Lawrenceville will collect any small branches, bags of leaves (in appropriate leaf bags) and other debris left in yards by Irma at the curb. Street crews will be coming by to remove those items, most likely, in conjunction with normal trash pick-up and removal times.

Loganville residents are being advised to put all limbs at the curb as soon as possible. Loganville’s public works crews will be picking up yard debris at no charge as soon as they are able.

If your pickup day has passed, Loganvill crews will try to make a second trip through city neighborhoods later this week. Crews unable to get to homes this week will be picked up next week.
