There are many ways to upcycle trees and branches. Check Pinterest for many suggestions! There is no limit to your imagination!

Last option

You may, as a last resort, wrap your branches in bundles and/or make them visible in boxes (maximum weight of 50 pounds each) and place them beside your bin on the 1st garbage collection of the month (bulk waste). NO BAGS will be picked up.

If you have a large quantity, try to space their disposal out between garbage collections.
