[ARCHIVED] Post-Ice Storm Information & Debris Pick Up Resources


The City of Wimberley will be contracting with a company to pick up limbs/branches (ONLY) that are placed curbside beginning next Wednesday, February 15th. They have asked that all limbs/branches be placed as close to the street as possible. The company will start on the Northern Side of Wimberley, near Las Flores and they will work their way South, then East to West. They will be collecting Wednesday, February 15 - Saturday February 18 and then again on February 21 and February 22.

AVOID: placing anything under cables or electric lines

WHAT IS ACCEPTED: Only limbs/branches - absolutely NO CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS

PLEASE: help your neighbors that may need assistance in getting brush to the curb and form as many community piles as possible, as this will make collection of branches easier and more efficient for the company providing services.

Post-Ice Storm information from The City of Wimberley

    The City of Wimberley is working to clear debris from city road easements. We ask that you please be patient: We have limited staff and equipment resources so the cleanup will take several weeks. Safety on our roads is our TOP PRIORITY. Those areas where there are dangerous situations are being addressed first. 

     City of Wimberley’s Local Disaster Declaration was extended on February 8 at a Special Meeting. 

    City of Wimberley residents: There will be limited curbside pick-up of ice storm tree debris by Texas Disposal Systems. Branches must be bundled and tied into 4-foot lengths, not to exceed 35 pounds per bundle, no more than 4 limbs per bundle and no more than 3 cubic yards per pick-up. (This is basically the size of a washer and dryer.). These items may be picked up over the next weeks, due to high volumes throughout the area. Smaller sticks and branches can be included in garbage bins. 

Residents in Hays County who need cleanup help can submit a request through the Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) and at

    Wimberley Baptist Church will NOT have a wood chipper available Feb. 7 & 8 (Tuesday and Wednesday) due to expected weather conditions. Operations will resume from 9 am to 3 pm Thursday and Friday, Feb. 9 & 10.  VOLUNTEERS NEEDED to ensure operations. Just show up with your gloves and gear. Please be considerate and do not dump debris onsite at the Church.  

    PLEASE HELP! It is VERY IMPORTANT that Wimberley area residents report ice storm damage online at  TDEM pSTAT & iSTAT Jurisdiction Portal (                

    As we cope with downed branches and limbs resulting from the recent ice storm, remember that these items can play an important role in our ecosystems. If you have more rustic acreage, downed trees and limbs can provide wildlife habitat and nutrients. They can also aid plant regeneration, help decrease erosion, and influence drainage and soil moisture and more! In addition, this organic material can be chipped into mulch and used for firewood.
