City Crews Removing Storm Debris for Free Monday
The city of Tulsa will begin special curbside debris removal next week to gather tree limbs from Tuesday night's storm.Crews will make one pass on Monday, July 29th, starting at 8 am. to 5 p.m. to collect residential debris at no cost.Guidelines:If able, residents should cut tree debris into 4-foot or smaller sections, and place those bundles at the curb for crews to collect. This may speed the process of collection across the city.If unable, residents must drag limbs to the curb for pickup.The regular schedule for the collection of bagged greenwaste will be interrupted during thisoperation, and will only resume once crews have made a full sweep through the entire city.Crews will only pick up debris set at the curb, near the street, where it is easily accessible.Tree debris should not be mixed with other kinds of debris. If there is housing, roofing or structural debris of any kind mixed in, the greenwaste will not be picked up.Residents are asked to keep parked cars away from debris stacked near the curbs so that grappler trucks can access the debris easily.Tulsans can also take tree and limb debris to the City's greenwaste processing site, 10401 E. 56th St. North, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at no charge.
