EDMOND, Okla. -

The city of Edmond will begin a major tree debris pick up process Monday.

The city says it could take weeks to complete.

This is the first of two rounds of debris removal in Edmond. Crews will start on the western side of the city and then move east. They will follow the same path for round two to pick up anything they left behind.

"When we did this during the last big ice storm in 2015, it takes weeks. So we are anticipating that this will take weeks as well" Colby Moore from the city of Edmond said.

All tree debris must be six feet long or less and must be placed within 10 feet of the curb.

The city is also advising to keep limbs away from water meters, gas meters, mailboxes, fire hydrants or irrigation systems.

The city is asking for everyone's patience due to the length of the process.

In the meantime, Edmond residents can drop off debris in person for free at the Hafer park baseball parking lots. This is available daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Its important to note these options are only for Edmond residents in city limits.
