Mayor Tim Theaker has announced that city crews are working this week to clean up storm debris from yesterday’s storm. Most debris blocking roadways has been cleared overnight.

 

A special storm debris pick-up has been scheduled to assist city residents in the most heavily-impacted section of the city. The impacted section is an area bounded by Cook Road on the South, Illinois Avenue on the east, Oak Street and Arch Street on the north, and Lexington Avenue on the west.

 

City residents living in this bounded area may bring limbs and branches, 3 inch diameter or smaller, to the curb this week for city pick-up. The pick-up will only occur in the defined boundary area and is planned to end by this Friday, June 22.

 

Questions about the city debris pick-up may be directed to the Street Department, 419-755-9803.

 

The Richland County Solid Waste drop-off area, located at 411 Cairns Road, will accept dropped-off storm debris for a small fee. The drop-off site is open Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays 8:00 a.m. to Noon. The County Solid Waste Authority may be reached at 419-774-5861
