City of Greeley Offering Greeley Residents Help
The City of Greeley is offering Greeley residents free pick up and drop site for downed tree limbs as a result of Wednesday's storm.
Due to the severity of the early winter storm this week, significant damage has occurred to trees in the community.
The City’s Public Works crews have prepared a location at Island Grove Regional Park in Greeley so that city residents can drop off their tree limbs and branches. The free drop site is located at 14th Avenue and A Street on the southwest corner across the street from the entrance to Centennial Village Museum. It will open beginning October 26 at noon and will remain open through November 15.
Residents are reminded to be cautious around any downed trees or limbs as dangerous conditions may exist, particularly where power lines are nearby. If residents see downed lines or hazardous conditions involving overhead lines or poles, they are asked to call Xcel Energy at 1- 800-895-4999.

1 in 8 people in Weld County struggle with hunger. That is just one of the many reasons Sears Real Estate volunteers monthly at the Weld Food Bank packing emergency food boxes.
To recognize Hunger Action Month, which was in September, Sears Real Estate agents and staff donated 102 jars of peanut butter to the Weld Food Bank. Every little bit helps!
