SHARE NOW

On Sunday, December 20, 2020 at 5:00 p.m., the City of Ponca City will CLOSE the Residential Ice Storm Tree Debris Only drop-off collection site located at Dan Moran Park, 1117 W. South Avenue.

The City of Ponca City’s Residential Ice Storm Tree Debris Only Collection is on-going and may take two to three months to complete, if not longer. There is no fee for this service. Crews are using a Limb Removal Pick Up Order that has been created to remove debris as efficiently and safely as possible, while working thru each of the 21 sections identified for collection (see attached map). The Parks Division is currently collecting debris in Section 6 and the Street Division is currently collecting debris in Section 4.  The Street Division and the Parks Division each have a crew comprised of dump trucks and a front-end loader. They are collecting debris based on the following guidelines:

  • Tree limbs must be cut into sections no longer than 8 feet.
  • Tree limbs must be placed at the curb (not in the street nor on sidewalks) and away from obstructions like poles, mail boxes, overhead wires, trees, and irrigation systems etc. Do not place tree debris in alleyways, so alleyways are not blocked for utility access.  Crews WILL NOT pick up debris that is blocked by vehicles parked in the street.
  • Crews will only make one pass through a neighborhood to collect debris, so it must be AT THE CURB when they arrive.
