Park Board sets tree debris collection for residents starting July 1
City and Park Board crews will keep working through the weekend to clear downed trees and reopen all city streets after Friday night's storm. The Park Board has also scheduled a tree debris collection to help residents with storm damage in the coming days. Park Board crews will collect tree debris that can be brought to the boulevard beginning July 1 through July 12 for properties affected by the storm. This service is for property owners clearing their property of tree debris after storm damage only—it is not for contractors doing work for property owners or for regular tree pruning. It is only for tree debris, not construction or other materials.
Here's how residents in the area can prepare downed trees and branches for collection:
- Move larger limbs, branches, and trunks to the boulevard area in front of your house. Park Board crews will pick up and dispose of these items at no charge.
- Property owners adjacent to tree debris placed on the boulevard are asked not to park vehicles near the debris, to help crews in the removal process. “No parking” signs may be posted and enforced to facilitate the cleanup operation.
