The City will begin pick up of non-city storm damage tree debris starting at 1st Street and 1st Avenue SE on Tuesday with one crew running streets and another running avenues. They will proceed next into the NE, NW and finishing in the SW. Please place your debris as follows: Large debris are cut into maximum 10-foot lengths and stacked so it does not present a safety hazard for the general public. Stacked on City right-of-way as they will not be removed from private property our out of any alleys. The debris must be placed so it does not block sidewalks, driveways or roadways or items such as visible water shutoffs.
The stacked area must be clear of parked vehicles and easily acessible for theCity equipment.
The City will make one pass only through each of the four quadrants. If you do not have your debris out in time it is your responsibility to dispose of them. If you do not want to wait or missed the City pick up, the yard waste site located in the 400 block of 7th Avenue SW is open 24/7 for Oelwein residents.
We appreciate everyone who is helping to clear debris.
