Smaller diameter logs must be bundled with no bundle weighing more than 25 pounds each. Logs weighing more than 50 pounds will not be collected. Residents must make their own arrangements for disposal of logs weighing more than 50 pounds. To facilitate collection keep log piles separate from branch bundles.
