Two Tree Limb Drop-Off Sites to Close Friday

(Enid, OK) Two temporary drop-off sites for limbs and ice storm debris, set up by the city of Enid, will close at 5 p.m. Friday.

The site in the 1500 block of West Chestnut and the South Government Springs Park site at 1202 S. 10th will be closed to residents, according to a city news release.

Residents can continue to dispose tree limbs and debris for free through Nov. 30 at the city landfill at 1313 E. Southgate from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

The closure of the drop sites is due to lack of use by city residents, according to the news release. With the closure, it will allow crews to focus on picking up debris and limbs from residential areas.

For easier removal of debris and tree limbs, residents are asked to:

• Stack tree limbs near the curb, away from obstructions like fire hydrants, mailboxes, trash cans and water meters

• Make sure piles are not below electric power lines or low-hanging branches

• Cut tree limbs and logs into sections (10 feet long or shorter)

• Set debris and limbs in a separate pile from trash waste pickup

City officials said it will take crews several weeks to remove debris.
