UPDATE: Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Property owners in the neighborhoods directly in the path of the tornado can leave tree limbs and brush at the curb for collection in the coming days.
City of Wichita Assistant Public Works Director Joe Pajor says pick-up will begin Thursday and is expected to take at least 10 days. City crews will only haul away brush and limbs. Debris must be moved to the curb as city employees cannot enter private property to get to debris.
Fifteen large waste dumpsters are being placed in the Oaklawn and Pinaire Mobile Home Park areas on Tuesday. Household debris should be placed in these dumpsters and will be emptied on a continual basis.
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 – including chemicals, paints, batteries, and other such waste – needs to be separated and taken to the Household Hazardous Waste facility at 801 Stillwell in Wichita. The facility’s regular hours are from 9am. – 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9am – 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
