Ice covered trees bringing big limbs down

EL RENO, Okla. — The recent ice storms have caused major damage to homes and trees in Oklahoma. El Reno has received the brunt of a lot of that damage.

The City of El Reno has hired Ceres Environmental Services to help clear tree limbs from residential yards.

Since the company cannot legally go onto private property, they are asking that tree limbs be stacked no further than 15 feet from the curb side, in “manageable sizes,” and in a timely manner.

The first sweep is planned to be finished by Friday, Jan. 22. The second sweep, which is expected to clear out the town, will be finished by the end of February.

For citizens who would like to remove their debris themselves, the free drop off site is located at 901 N. Foster (commonly known as Waste Water Location) and can be accessed from Highway 81 North (north side at base of overpass).  After exiting the highway, turn into the red gate and then follow the road around to the debris site.

The site will remain open until Feb 28.

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has been approved to burn the limb debris at a city-owned site located at Foreman and Country Club Rd.

The Foreman and Country Club location will be utilized as the drop/burn site for debris collected by CERES Environmental only.
