I heard there's a place you can drop off tree trimmings, wood and other yard stuff somewhere not far from the airport. Also I heard they weigh your car before and after you unload to calculate how much the stuff weighed and how much to charge. Does anyone know if there's also a flat fee to enter or is it based purely on how much you drop off?

If its not commercial, there is no minimum. For a bed full of shrubs/bushes its was about $1-$2. I have a tacoma, with a regular bed size.

You just drive your vehicle up the ramp. They weight you. You pull your brush off. They weight you on the way out and you pay the difference.

You can also buy mulch there as well.

Another thing to note is they CAN (but I haven't had it happen to me yet) charge you $5.00 for going with uncovered brush (i.e., a tarp). So if you have one, use it, just in case.

I think it must depend on when you go there and who is on duty. I was charged $5.00 for not covering the load on the way into the brush dump, and paid no fee on the way out. I've also gotten mulch there. I loaded up the truck to the brim and did not cover it when I left. I did leave a trail of mulch blowing in the wind on the way home, but no fine for not being covered.
The site is on Bitters Rd. behind the airport.

You can use the city's 311 service to shedule a curbside pickup as I found out after recently rebuilding my fence just two weeks past my semi-annual free brush pickup day. We had about two large truckloads of debris (broken fencing, brush, etc.) and were told the Bitters location only accepts brush, so we would have had to drive it across town to a landfill on I-35.

The city picked it all up from my curb within 5 business days of calling, total cost $54.06
