City to collect ice storm debris

DUNCAN — The City of Duncan will collect tree limbs and other debris left from last December’s ice storm during a six-week cleanup that begins next week.

“We’ve been getting a lot of calls,” said Dana Schoening, community development director.

The cleanup will  continue into  mid March.

The city has been divided into four quadrants and will focus on each section for a week. The last two weeks will be spent retracing steps to collect anything that remains.

The first quadrant to be covered will entail areas  west of U.S. Highway 81 and north of Main Street.

The second quadrant covers an area east of U.S. Highway 81 and north of Main Street; the third quadrant includes areas east of U.S. Highway 81 and south of Main Street, and last area includes neighborhoods west of U.S. Highway 81 and south of Main Street.

The first two quadrants will  likely have the most debris because they are more  heavily wooded  more densely populated, said Schoening.

“This is only for tree limbs,” Schoening said. “Couches are for Waste Connections (Duncan’s trash collection company) to pick up.”

The city wants residents to place storm debris on the curb and prefers that limbs be cut in 6- to 8-feet lengths.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
