EDMOND, Oklahoma – Some Edmond residents say they're tired of waiting for the city to remove debris from severe storms in August.

Severe weather swept through Edmond on August 10, 2011. It knocked down trees and power lines, and even toppled a church steeple at Waterloo and Coltrane Roads. The storms scattered debris across the city.

Many Edmond residents moved as quickly as possible to clean up their properties. They say dead trees, large branches and other debris are stacked on their cubs just waiting to be removed.

A spokesperson for Edmond says the city is right on schedule with debris removal. Keith Stewart says collection began on August 15. The city originally anticipated the removal would take at least one month from the start date.

Stewart says the city can only collect tree limb debris. Residents can bag additional debris and place it in their garbage carts, or in city-approved bags from local retailers.

See Edmond's debris collection map.

Stewart says people who want to get rid of the debris immediately can take it to the Transfer Station located at 5300 Recycle Drive. They can also schedule a pickup up time with Bulk Collection services, or hire an independent contractor to remove the debris.

Anyone with questions can call Edmond's Public Works Administration (405) 216-7770.
