The City of Oklahoma City says residents can begin putting tree branches and limbs that were downed by the ice storm within ten feet of the their curb Sunday.

The City asks that residents keep debris away from mailboxes, vehicles, trees, power lines and telephone poles.

Storm debris collection is set to begin in parts of the city the week of December 7. During this free collection, crews will only be hauling off tree debris. The collection does not include businesses.

Solid Waste Superintendent Jim Linn said a second round of debris collection will begin a few weeks later so residents have an ample amount of time to get their limbs to the curb.

Big junk will still be collected according to the normal schedule. Residents scheduled for big junk collection are required to keep their tree debris separated from their big junk. The piles will be collected by separate crews. Normal bulk waste rules apply, which means no household hazardous waste or items that contain refrigerant.
