Storm debris clean-up for Oklahoma City residents that sustained tree or limb damage from the Aug. 26 storm will begin on Tuesday, September 3.
All residents need to set out their storm-related tree and limb debris at the curb so it will be ready when crews come by.
What you need to know:
- Cut tree limbs into sections of 10 feet or shorter and stack on the curb.
- Place all trees and limbs separately and away from regular bulky trash such as furniture, carpet, fencing and appliances.
- Do not mix regular bulky trash in with your tree limbs and landscape debris.
- Make sure all debris is set away from mailboxes, poles, gas and power lines, water meters, trees and other obstructions.
- Tree limbs will be collected separately from regular bulky waste so may not be picked up at the same time.
- The City is hosting a FREE LANDFILL DAY on Saturday, September 7 for residents who want to get a jump start on their debris.
Designated storm area
Neighborhoods hardest hit have been designated as special storm debris areas. Crews will make two sweeps of these areas during the month of September, which will allow residents time to get excess debris to the curb if they are missed during the first pass.
Bulky fees and early set-out warnings have been waived for residential tree and landscape debris for the month of September in the designated areas only. The waiver does not apply to regular bulky waste.
Commercial properties – including businesses, churches, schools, nonprofits and other organizations – are not eligible for curbside pickup by the City and are responsible for their own debris collection.
