Storm Debris Pickup Continues
WHEATON, Ill. – The City’s Public Works Department, assisted by four private tree service contractors, continue their efforts to remove tree debris from the July 1, 2012 storm from City parkways. Currently, the majority of the City’s efforts are focused on the area bounded by Main Street, Geneva Road, President Street and Harrison Avenue. It is anticipated that the City-wide tree debris removal effort will continue through the end of the month. Crews are about halfway done removing debris from the hardest hit areas.
In addition to the debris removal, City crews are also continuing to remove hanging or damaged branches from parkway trees. Following this effort and the removal of tree debris from the parkway by the City, the City will begin removing damaged parkway trees.
Please remember that City pickup efforts will include one pass down each of the streets in our community. Once a block has been cleared, the City will not return to pick up additional materials. Residents are also reminded that it is their responsibility to address tree damage on their property. Residents should contact private tree services for cutting and removing private property debris.
