Update from the City of Omaha:
CURBSIDE STORM DEBRIS COLLECTION
Beginning Monday July 12, FCC Environmental, the city's solid waste contractor, will collect storm debris from residential addresses along with regular garbage and recycling service. This emergency collection will run for one week.
Tree debris can be placed in the 96-gallon trash carts or in brown yard waste bags on your regular day of collection. Pre-paid stickers will not be required this week.
Larger tree debris can be bundled with rope or twine and placed at the curb next to the cart. Branches and limbs 4 feet in length or less, branches 6 inches in diameter or less, with a weight of approximately 40 pounds or less will be collected.
Larger limbs are only accepted at the temporary drop-off locations.
Due to the additional volume, all collections this week may be delayed by one day. FCC will work Monday-Saturday to provide service.
