The City of Oklahoma City is releasing more contracted crews to help clean up debris left behind from the tornadoes that tore through the state in May.

Residents are asked to divide debris into three piles, all of which will be collected by separate crews. Those piles include storm debris, normal bulky waste, and hazardous materials. Collection begins July 22.  

City officials report more than 74-hundred tons of debris have been collected since June 5.  A map showing cleanup progress is updated every Tuesday. 

Cleanup crews are primarily focusing their efforts on two areas:

  • NW 36th St. to SW 134th St. and from Mustang Rd. to Santa Fe Ave.
  • Eastern to Anderson Rd. and from SW 44th St. to SW 89th St.
