OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City officials say crews will begin collecting debris from last week's storms starting on Wednesday. 

The plan is to start at the intersection of Reno and Council and then move Northeast. 

The city plans to release a map this week with the exact details of the clean-up. 

Here are some tips the city has released to help residents prepare for pickup. 

  1. Cut all limbs and trees into lengths of 10 feet or shorter. 
  2. Keep all storm debris separate from your regular bulky trash such as appliances, furniture, or carpeting. If storm debris is set out with regular bulky trash, it will not be collected until your regular bulky trash day and fees will apply. 
  3. Make sure all debris is out at the curb by 6 a.m. on your designated storm debris collection date. 
  4. Do not cover sidewalks or water meters, and keep all debris away from mailboxes, trees, or other obstacles. 
  5. Fencing should not go in with tree or limb piles but put in with regular bulky trash collection. 

Commercial properties like businesses, churches, schools and other organizations are not eligible for the city’s special storm collection and are responsible for their own debris.
