In response to the need to assist citizens with cleanup efforts related to recent wind and storm damage from the weekend, Martinsville Public Works' crews will provide storm debris cleanup for the remainder of the week ending Friday, June 17th, picking up brush, small limbs, and other wind and storm-related debris.   Limbs and other debris must be cut to 8 ft. lengths or less and stacked behind the curb or ditch line.  This service is not available to remove entire trees cut up by homeowners or contractors.   To schedule a pickup for storm debris please call Public Works at 403-5348 through Thursday, June 16th.   After June 16th please call the regular brush pick-up number at 403-5350, or for other bulk items 403-5419.   A more detailed description of bulk/brush collection services is listed on the City's website under "Services/Public Works/Bulk Trash Collection Program".
