City of Tulsa updates storm debris pick up.

City officials said more than 120 employees worked Monday to clear storm tree and limb debris from residential areas and rights of way on the outer edges of the city of Tulsa.

They are working from the outer limits of the city to the center, and anticipate the entire operation - including a full sweep through every street in the city, will take about 30 days to complete.

The heaviest tree damage occurred in the midtown area.

Work zones are being posted online in advance to give residents notice that their neighborhoods have been scheduled for pick up.

Once the neighborhood is shown in green on our city map - - the residents should have their debris ready for pickup, although it may be a day or two before they are reached by our crews.

In addition to the City's efforts, residents are also delivering tree and limb debris to the City's greenwaste facility, 10401 E. 56th St. North.

Totals so far:

From city street pickup and stormwater facilities cleaned: Total 1,159 cubic yards

Citizen contribution - delivered 1,980 cubic yards to greenwaste site.

All signals that were out due to the storm power outages have all been restored and damaged signals have been repaired, with the last signal at I-44 and Riverside, coming back online last night.
