Storm Debris Removal Update: First Pass Underway, Saturday Resident Drop-off Location Announced

The City of Norman storm debris contractor began the first pass of storm debris removal on Monday with an expected completion of December 6. A second pass is anticipated to begin on December 7.

Currently, trucks are focused in the most heavily hit area of the city in Wards 2 and 4. As more trucks arrive in the next week, operations will expand to cover Wards 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 8. Residents will be notified of pick up at their residence via a door hanger placed at their home one day in advance of debris removal. Locate your Ward on this interactive map.

Residents will also have the opportunity to drop off their storm debris on Saturday, November 14 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Griffin Park, located at 1001 E Robinson St. Proof of residence is required and commercial debris will not be accepted.

Those participating in curbside debris removal are reminded:

  • Only debris placed on the public right-of-way will be eligible for collection. Do not place debris in alleys for collection.
  • Do not place debris near mail boxes, poly carts, water meter vaults, gas meters, fire hydrants or any other above-ground utility.
  • Residents should make every effort to place debris along the public street rights-of-way. This should include vegetative and debris only. This material should be cut in approximately 8- foot to 12-foot lengths and stacked in piles along the right-of-way or within five feet of the curb or edge of roadway. Do not bag these items.
  • Weekly household garbage and yard waste collection will continue its normal schedule. Limbs no larger than 2 inches in diameter, bundled in 4 foot lengths will be picked up by the City Sanitation Division. Please place the bags of yard waste along the curb as usual, but keep separate from the storm debris.
