Tree & Branch Recycling Days
- Held three times each year, Tree and Branch Recycling Days allows Ankeny residents to dispose of trees and branches free of charge.
- The designated site for Tree and Branch Recycling Days is at the City Maintenance Facility, located at 211 SE Lorenz Drive, Ankeny.
- Participation is restricted to Ankeny residents living within the corporate city limits.
- There is no fee, however participants will be asked for proof of residency.
- Trees and branches must have a trunk size no larger than 8" in diameter and no smaller than 1” in diameter. Larger sizes will not be accepted because of its inability to be recycled through the chipper.
- Tree roots, stumps and other yard waste material will not be accepted because it may clog and jam the chipping machine. Residents are asked to have the cut end of their branches stacked at the end of their vehicles for easy removal.
- Ensure that your vehicle or trailer is clear of items before loading with branches. Items such as ropes, chains, and fence posts have been pulled into the chipper by branches causing damage to equipment and injury to City staff.
- Commercial vehicles and trucks larger than a pickup are prohibited from participating in this recycling program.
If you miss Tree and Branch Recycling Days, contact your trash hauler to arrange for the pick-up of your trees and branches.
