City of Round Rock provides resources for tree limb disposal

View the City’s Brush Disposal Information page and Ice Storm Recovery Dashboard at

In an effort to assist in-city residents with disposal of fallen tree limbs on private property, the City of Round Rock has opened an additional temporary brush recycling location and is allowing residents to request free brush pickup over the coming weeks.

“Our community has handled multiple events in the past few years that required extensive cleanup efforts, and the key ingredient to success in each one has been patience,” said Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan. “The City of Round Rock is working diligently to provide the resources needed to clear out the massive amount of debris caused by this storm.”

Any fallen trees on private property are the responsibility of the property owner to take care of.

The services below are free and only available for in-city residents. If you are unsure whether you live in the City limits, you can use the tool below.

Brush drop-off locations

Residents can drop off brush for free from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Sunday at the following locations:

Anyone using this service must prove residency by showing a current City of Round Rock water bill and valid drivers license. Absolutely no contract drop-off is allowed.

Regular trash pickup for smaller, bundled limbs

For smaller limbs, as part of the City’s contract with Central Texas Refuse, residents can place up to 7 additional items free of charge next to their garbage container along the curb on their trash pickup day. Brush must be bundled, and each bundle must be less than 40 pounds and no larger than 4 ft. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. Please note that Central Texas Refuse is running on a delayed schedule due to the ice storm, and trash crews’ main focus right now is trash pickup. This service is free for existing City of Round Rock trash customers (must receive a water bill from City of Round Rock) and does not require any additional signup.

PLEASE NOTE: The “plus 7” pickup outside of containers is running behind schedule at this time; if you had additional items outside of your containers that were not picked up on your trash pickup day, please keep these items at the curb as Central Texas Refuse catches up with bulk item pickup.

Curbside pickup request for larger limbs (under 10 feet in length)

For larger limbs, residents can schedule a free curbside pickup through the City’s Online Service Request form or by calling 512-218-5540. The fee for this service is expected to be waived at least through the end of February. Residents can use the form below to request this service.

Brush must be piled on the curb, with limbs no longer than 10 feet and not bundled. Do not place the brush in the public right-of-way — it is acceptable for the limbs to block sidewalks at this time. Brush piles must have 5 feet of clearance on all sides and free from obstructions 15 feet tall (power lines and trees). Do not place brush piles within 5 feet of mail boxes, poles, trees, parked cars or the bulk trash pile. Failure to follow the guidelines will result in the resident being responsible for the removal.

Please note: Due to the amount of requests anticipated, curbside service may take up to several weeks after the request is made. However, the form should not be filled out until your limbs are ready for pickup.

Important note about tree limbs in roadways

City of Round Rock Transportation crews continue to work to ensure that roadways are passable; however, they will only remove tree limbs that are blocking roadways and presenting a danger to motorists. These limbs are being placed out of the roadway for public safety reasons; residents are asked not to move them back into the roadway.
