The City of Denver is anticipating many broken and downed tree branches with heavy winds coming through the metro Wednesday.

DENVER — With heavy winds blowing through the Denver metro area, Denver Parks and Recreation reminds residents where they can drop off tree branches that get damaged during the storm.

Drop-off sites will be available starting Thursday, Dec. 15 and remaining open through Wednesday Dec. 22, Denver Parks and Recreation tweeted.

There will be three sites for branch disposal:
