Information on planting a tree in the right-of-way between the street and the sidewalk is available here:
City trucks are available for rent by residents ONLY from late May through mid September. Trucks are delivered to your home, parked and remain stationary until picked up by DPW personnel the next business day. The trucks are primarily available for trash items that could, when properly prepared, go to the street for normal trash pickup.
You MUST have permission from DPW to put construction or any other materials in the truck. For all but trash type debris, there may be a disposal charge.
