Crews to Pick Up Storm Debris from Parkways
WHEATON, Ill. – Since the severe storm hit the city of Wheaton on July 1, 2012, the City’s Public Works Department has been working on clearing roadways and addressing safety-related issues caused by the damage to trees in the community. This effort should be completed today, July 3, as the Public Works Department continues to remove hanging branches over the streets and parkways; clear street corners where site obstructions exist; and address any other hazardous situations created by the storm.
Commencing on Thursday, July 5, the Public Works Department will start a tree debris pickup program. The Public Works Department will pick up storm-related debris from City parkways. The department will make one pass down each of the streets in our community to remove the tree debris that is placed on the parkway. The City will not pick up general yard waste or other yard materials not related to the storm. In addition to the City’s crews, private contractors will be employed by the City to assist in hauling debris from the City’s parkways.
The City will not perform any work on private property. For tree damage on private property, residents should contract with private tree services for cutting and removal of private property debris.
