From the City’s Parks and Recreation Department:
Pay It Forward – Help Your Neighbor
HOLLAND – Helping your neighbor is what Holland residents do. Because of the recent storm, there are residents of the City of Holland who have been very generous in offering assistance to the City by providing manpower to assist with storm clean up.
We have determined that the very best way to help would be to canvas the neighborhoods that have been most affected by the storm and assist residents – especially those who might have physical disabilities, to get any debris that they might have to the curbside for pick up.
Also, if you visit some of the parks that have been hit the worst and collect some of the smaller limbs into brush piles, this will allow our City staff to concentrate on taking care of some of the bigger trees and limbs.
Residents are reminded that they have through this weekend, July 17th to get their storm debris placed curbside. This will be very much like the City’s Spring Cleanup Program where branches need to be limited to 6-8” in diameter and be cut to 6-8’ in length. No stumps will be removed. If residents had whole, private trees come down, they will need to contract with a tree service for removal of those.
Beginning on Monday, July 18th, City Street Dept. crews will begin a single pass through the City to collect those materials. As with Spring Cleanup, they will go by each resident one time only. Debris placed curbside after July 17th will not be picked up.
Residents who are unable to get their refuse out by the deadline may call 355-1335 to request a Project Pride Day coupon. This coupon allows residents to bring a load of refuse to Chef Container at no cost to them. You do have to bring it to Chef this is not a curbside pickup.
If you are interested in offering assistance and are wondering how best to do that, please contact the Parks Division at 928-2450 for suggestions and THANK YOU for your patience and efforts!
