City Nearing End of Storm Debris Cleanup from December Event

ice-39McKinney Public Works officials have nearly completed cleanup efforts from the December ice storm. About 25,000 cubic yards of debris was removed from residential curbsides and other right-of-way areas, which produced nearly 5,900,000 pounds of chipped debris from the fallen limbs, branches, and trees collected as a result from the storm.

“Our crews have been working weekends and holidays to complete the cleanup as quickly as possible” said Paul Sparkman, Interim Public Works Director. “These dedicated employees have worked tirelessly to get our city back in shape and have helped to finish cleanup efforts much earlier than we originally anticipated.”

Final cleanup efforts will focus on the remaining storm debris that has been scouted by city crews.

“As people are beginning their seasonal yard maintenance, they are calling the city to pick up pruned limbs and lawn clippings as part of the storm debris collection,” Sparkman said. “Residents need to treat this as yard waste that will be collected by Progression Waste Services on their regularly scheduled collection day.”

When preparing yard waste, residents should bag grass clippings, leaves and other lawn trimmings in paper biodegradable lawn bags. Trees should be trimmed to 4-foot lengths, bundled and tied in bunch less than 50 pounds.

For more information on yard waste collection, visit the city’s website or contactProgressive Waste Solutions at 469-452-8000.
