The City of Bartlesville will offer a free curbside pick-up next week for storm debris in residential areas affected by the May 6 tornado. In addition to tree limbs, brush and other vegetative debris, the City will also pick up nonvegetative debris during this collection.
“In response to this storm event, we are expanding our curbside service next week to include non-vegetative debris such as fencing, roofing and structures,” said Public Works Director Keith Henry.
Henry said these materials will be taken to the Osage Landfill, so they will need to be separated  from tree limbs, brush and other vegetation at the curbside collection point. “If you are a residential Solid Waste customer of the City and you live in an area that received storm damage, you are eligible for this free collection,” he said. “Just make sure your tree limbs and brush are in one area and any other debris is in a separate area at your curb, and our guys will come and pick it up.”
Henry said crews will start the collection at 6 a.m. on Monday, May 13, in the most heavily impacted areas - primarily the southwest and northeast portions of the city. They will move to more isolated areas as they can.
Residents should have their debris at their curb for collection no later than 6 a.m. on May 13. The curbside service is in addition to the free drop-off site provided on City property located on  West Highway 60 just east of the Green Country Rodeo Arena. The drop-off site is open 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The site will be open 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, as well.
For more information, contact the Public Works Department at 918.338.4130.
Note: Tree limbs left for collection should be cut into lengths no longer than six feet and weigh less than 50 pounds.
