Residents can stack branches and other debris behind the curb of their home for pickup that day. Trees “must be cut as small as possible” and each piece must weigh under 50 pounds, according to a city release. Branches and tree limbs must be four feet long or less, with pieces larger than that cut to an acceptable size.

Yard trimmings must be put in 20- to 40-gallon metal or plastic containers with two handles or biodegradable paper bags with the tops folded over. Trimmings and debris in  plastic bags will not be collected.

Residents can get more information about Peachtree Corners’ storm response at the city’s website.
