City crews will begin clean up efforts this week for neighborhoods directly affected by the weekend's severe storms.

Property owners directly in the path of the tornado can leave tree limbs and brush at the curb for collection in the coming days. Public works' Joe Pajor said the City will pick up tree debris starting Thursday. Specific boundaries for cleanup areas will be indentified and released later.

Sedgwick County Public Works Office is sending out a truck Monday to pick up household hazardous waste. The Sedgwick County Public Works truck will be clearly identified and will drive through the Oaklawn and 71st St. South area neighborhoods between the hours of 1-5 p.m. today.

Items that will be picked up or to be dropped off include the following:

Paint
Batteries
Motor oil
Antifreeze
Household cleaners
Fertilizers
Pesticides
Solvents
Pool Chemicals
Fluorescent Lights

Please do not include any items such as electronics, televisions, ammunitions, radioactive material, or biologically active substances. These items will not be taken.

Other debris can be hauled for disposal at one of the four sites listed below. Regular disposal fees will apply to the property owner. Hazardous household waste can be taken to the Household Hazardous Waste facility at 801 Stillwell in Wichita.
