Tree Debris Requested by 311 Service

$0 / year

This dataset shows the tree debris request reported by the 311 Service. It includes all open requests, all completed requests and duplicated requests since December 03, 2011.

Categories: ,

Large piles of branches or bushes may be picked up by the Department of Streets and Sanitation. 311 Service sometimes creates duplicate requests for tree debris removal. When there is an open tree debris request, a duplicate request is created when the exact same address and the exact same service request type are used. Streets and Sanitation responds to the initial request opened and closes the duplicates. A forestry “Clam” is the name of the vehicle the Forestry Bureau deploys to collect tree debris.

This service is used to request a pickup of a pile of branches or bushes. The branches/bushes must be neatly stacked in the alley or City Parkway near the curb. Blocking a street, the sidewalk of alleyway may result in a sanitation code ticket being issued. Certain questions are asked to complete this request: is the amount larger than a desk and where is the debris located?
