Tree Limb Pick-up is for residents living on township maintained roads in unincorporated Elgin Township only. In order to remove tree limbs in a cost effective, timely and orderly fashion the Elgin Township Highway Department institutes the following guidelines:

  • All limbs must be curbside by 7:00am Monday morning the week of pickup.
  • There will be no double coverage; once we go through your area we will not be back until the next scheduled pick-up.
  • Maximum size of limbs to be discarded is 8″ in diameter and can be 12′ to 15′ in length.
  • This is not a tree removal program. If you are removing entire trees larger than 8″ diameter, you will have to hire someone to dispose of them.
  • Please stack all piles cut end towards the road.
  • Please separate into piles not just one large pile no more than 3 feet high and orderly.
  • Do not stack logs on branch piles make a separate pile.
  • All small clippings can be placed in a garbage can or brown yard waste bag but NO stones or soil. No yard waste (grass, flower clippings, or leaves).
  • All bushes and root balls will be accepted if free of soil.
  • Wood chips are available to homeowners residing on township maintained streets. We will deliver.
