Curbside removal of storm debris will be provided by the city of Fayetteville, but it will take months to complete the cleanup.
The city compost facility is closed during the cleanup, but citizens can take storm debris to two alternate sites.
Only tree and brush debris may be disposed of at these sites, which are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
1) Noland Wastewater Treatment Plant
1400 N. Fox Hunter Road
From the intersection of Mission Boulevard and Crossover Road, go East on Mission for about four-fifths of a mile. Turn South (right) on Fox Hunter Road for about 1.5 miles. The site is on the east (left) side of the road.
2) West Side Wastewater Treatment Plant
5 S. 54th Ave.
From the intersection of Wedington Drive and Rupple Road go west on Wedington for about 1.5 miles.
Turn south (left) on 54th Avenue for about for one mile. The site is on the east (left) side of the road.
What do I do with the brush?
The City of Fayetteville plans to send crews out this weekend “to the hardest hit” areas to start dealing with all the downed limbs. Take your limbs and brush to the curb, but make sure it is cut to resonable lengths, otherwise it’s difficult for the workers to load and haul off. If you cut everything to 4-foot or shorter you’ll be good.
ALSO, if SWEPCO cleared limbs and brush in front of your property, that debris is now your responsiblity. You’ll have to deal with it…cut it up and place it on the curb. Don’t bitch about this. They’ve got to keep moving to get us all hooked up again.
The city says it will resume its regular garbage pick up schedule on Monday and there will not be additional charge for extra bags.
Give our new mayor a break and keep calls to a minimum while he’s busy organizing and getting all this in action. Also…remember to help out neighbors who are unable to clear their own yards. Many elderly or physically challenged folks are wondering what they’re going to do and most of them can’t pay the high prices to have professionals do the work. Just remember, when you’re clearing the debris watch for any downed lines and overhead lines and keep clear.
