MOORE, Okla. – The City of Moore has completed the debris removal process from residences affected by the May storms.

“Now it’s getting to where every time it rains or blows, we’re not getting debris because it’s all gone. So it’s helping things,” Moore resident Denice Byers said.

Byers lives near Plaza Towers Elementary School, one of the hardest hit areas in the May 20 tornado.

She and her family rode out the storm in a closet.

They have been working for months trying to repair their house.

She says seeing the cleanup progress across the city and in her neighborhood helps them heal.

“You have less bad days,” She said. “You’re always going to have bad days here and there but the more that gets done, the better. It feels like home again.”

Any Moore resident who has large items to dispose of should call Moore Public Works at (405) 793-5070 and schedule a Big Trash Pick Up.

Contractors doing building and repair work should have adequate, on-site containers for waste as there will be no more curbside debris pick-up.

“They have just done an awesome job on cleaning up what was here, Byers said.
