Last night's storm not only left some without power, but also left neighborhoods across the city littered with broken tree limbs.

If you are one of many residents with a pile of tree limbs to dispose of, the City of Wichita Falls is making it easier for you to get rid of them over the next couple of weeks. An area of Kiwanis Park has been made available for you to dump your tree debris. Here is the official statement from the city:

The City of Wichita Falls has opened a portion of Kiwanis Park, 4400 Southwest Parkway (click here for directions), for residents to dispose of brush and tree limbs after yesterday’s storm. Enter Kiwanis and follow the cones to the back or north side of the park (near the cemetery) and unload the material. Only brush and tree limbs are allowed at the site, no treated material or plastic bags will be accepted.

The location will be open 24 hours a day until Monday, June 11th when the site will be closed.

Residents are reminded that the Transfer Station is closed for repairs but they can use the City Landfill located at 10984 Wiley Road, in addition to the temporary location at Kiwanis Park. There is no charge for City residents to use the landfill for brush and limb disposal.

Citizens are encouraged to take advantage of these disposal methods, as there is no curbside pickup of brush and tree limbs unless they are placed in a green curbside recycling bin for the regular Wednesday yard waste pick up.

The City’s Covered Load Ordinance is in effect and all loads must be covered. For more information please contact the Sanitation Division at 761-7977.
