Tornado Debris Removal and Cleanup Begins Today

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY — Residential storm debris removal and cleanup operations begin today. It will take about four weeks to cover all the neighborhoods in southeast Oklahoma City that were hit by the May 10 tornadoes.

• Only damaged trees and brush debris will be collected

Crews will remove storm-related damaged trees and brush debris only. Debris must be placed at the curb. Crews will not go on private property to remove debris. Debris piles that contain both tree debris and building materials will not be collected.

• Storm-damaged trees and brush will not be collected with bulk waste Bulk waste collection crews will run regularly scheduled routes and will not collect storm debris. Citizens are asked to keep regular monthly bulk waste separate from the storm-damaged trees and brush pile.

• Other Storm Debris

Removal of the remaining structure of a damaged house and other storm debris is the responsibility of the homeowner and his or her insurance company. Entire homes or concrete slabs placed at the curb are not eligible for removal.

The service will be provided only in areas within and immediately adjacent to the tornado paths. View a collection route map.

Owners are responsible for removing debris from commercial property. This program does not cover debris removal from commercial property.
