Tulsa spokeswoman: About 3,000 cubic yards of debris picked up or delivered to greenwaste facility

TULSA - Day two of curbside debris cleanup continued Tuesday in what could be a month-long operation after last week's storm.

Crews set out at 8 a.m. to continue pickup in the outer areas of Tulsa, which was not complete Monday.

If possible, residents are asked to trim limbs into 4-foot or smaller sections and place them curbside away from mailboxes or cars. Other debris should not be mixed in with the greenwaste.

Homeowners can also haul their greenwaste debris to the city's processing site free of charge at 10401 E. 56th St. North from 8 a.m to 4 p.m. daily.

Meanwhile, trash and recycling services will continue as normal.

A complete sweep of the city is expected to take about 30 days, according to MacLeod.

Some homeowners tell 2NEWS as long as the debris is cleaned up sometime within the month, they will be OK.

"I'm glad. Grateful," said midtown homeowner Victoria.  "Frankly, my concern is we wont be able to get what we have to put out there in time. So if it takes a month that's fine. I'm just happy their going to do it."

So far, city crews have picked up 1,159 cubic yards of debris and residents have delivered 1,980 cubic yards of debris to the city's greenwaste location.
