NORMAN, Okla. – If you have driven through Cleveland County recently, you’ve probably noticed that a lot has been done in the last few weeks to clean up the mess left behind by Mother Nature.

Authorities said the debris-removal process is continuing to progress but a lot is left to be done.

Cleveland County crews and private contractors have been working 12-hour days, every day to clean up the debris.

The first phase is almost complete and the final sweep of the area will begin on July 15.

Area residents are asked to move all remaining storm debris to within 10 feet of the roadside by July 15 for collection.

Citizens are also reminded of the following:

  • Do not place debris in the street
  • Do not allow debris to protrude into the street
  • Do not obstruct driveways with debris
  • Do not pile debris so that it impairs visibility for drivers or pedestrians.

If you have any questions, call the Cleveland County Commissioner’s Office at (405) 366-0200.
