Collections continued today, Sept. 13th, on day 4 of the Storm Debris Clean-Up. Crews are working hard to pick up as much debris as possible in focused areas to assist residents with clean-up efforts. We would like to thank everyone for their cooperation during this time and extend our gratitude to our residents for all their hard work.
Even with our best effort put forth, these courtesy pick-ups will not be enough to address everyone in the City. The next stage of the process is the placement of 6 roll-off dumpsters at Ten Acre Lake for citizens to dispose of their residual storm debris ONLY. The dumpsters will be available Saturday, Sept. 14 through Sunday, Sept. 22nd. Again, the dumpsters are for storm debris ONLY. No regular trash or bulk trash will be allowed as the City's disposal site will not accept the dumpsters with trash or bulky items.
If residents find they still have debris beyond September 22nd, they will be responsible to cut and bundle the remaining debris into 4-foot bundles and utilize the regular bulk waste pick-up in their area. Citizens may also obtain a burn permit and burn any remaining debris. Burn permits can be obtained by contacting the Choctaw Fire Department at 405-390-8300. Burn permits are free.
Again, we want to thank all of our citizens for their cooperative efforts!
