Grass, plants and trees appeared to be suffering most from Friday night’s storm that left thick layers of ice on certain surfaces.
Ice accumulations of .50-.75 inches were reported along the Interstate 44 corridor, according to the National Weather Service.
The City of Edmond has been answering calls related to debris collection efforts from the storm, according to a news release posted Monday on the city’s website.
Officials said the city’s emergency plan describes thresholds of response for debris collection. At this point, officials stated, the city has not reached the threshold at which crews would be dispatched to assist.
Residents may take broken tree limbs and other debris to the Edmond Transfer Station located east of I-35 on Covell. To receive the discount available to Edmond residents, customers need to show their driver’s license and city utility bill.
Cost for disposal is $15 for a level bed pickup load full of debris. For more information, call the privately-owned and operated Edmond Transfer Station at 216-9401.
Residents may also schedule a bulk pick up at their curb by calling 359-4541. The fee for collecting and disposing of tree limbs or other debris will be added to the monthly utility bill. If requested, the city will provide an estimated cost before scheduling the bulk pick up.
For limited debris, residents can place bags in their cart for the weekly collection or you can buy city-coded bags from local retail stores. The cost of the city-coded bags pre-pays the collection and disposal fee.
To report debris in the roadway, call 216-7770.
