Chipper Service

The City of Lilburn offers free removal of small trees, limbs, and shrubbery for homeowners who reside within the incorporated Lilburn city limits. The Public Works Department makes every effort to sweep the entire city once a week and will pick up visible debris piles left at the curb. 

The chipper’s route and time between pickups varies, depending upon the work load and season. If you have debris that has not been collected after two weeks, please request removal online or call 770-638-2196 and leave your name, address, and phone number.
