Storm debris pickup underway in Oklahoma City
OKLAHOMA CITY – Downed tree limbs and a bit of damage was left behind in the wake of severe storms that moved through the state this past weekend.
Officials with Oklahoma City say residents with downed trees or tree limbs can stack them in 10-foot sections for curbside pickup, or take advantage of a free landfill day on Saturday.
Based on damage assessments, the affected storm area is bordered by MacArthur Boulevard on the west, Bryant Avenue on the east, NW/NE 50th Street on the north and Reno Avenue on the south, with an extension south to SE/SW 59th Street between Meridian and Western avenues.
Homeowners should cut trunks and limbs in sections of 10 feet or less and keep tree debris separate from other bulk waste.
Also, keep the debris away from mailboxes, poles, gas lines, water meters, trees and other obstructions.
The limbs will be picked up through May 30 as part of the regularly scheduled monthly bulk waste pickup for Oklahoma City residents.
You may also drop off trees and downed limbs as part of the free landfill day that is scheduled for Saturday.
Residential customers can drop off one load per household using a vehicle up to the size of a one ton pickup truck, plus one trailer up to 16 feet long.
Bring a current, original City of Oklahoma City utility bill or a printout of an e-bill to prove residency.
