The City of Omaha will have two tree debris drop off locations open beginning Tuesday morning. They are at 11th and Locust and in the north parking lot of Tranquility Park at 120th and West Maple.
There is no charge to drop off trees and other storm debris. "There are pockets of damage city-wide Mayor Jean Stothert says. "Our public works and parks employees are clearing trees that are blocking city streets and cleaning up our parks."
The storm spared Memorial Park where Friday night's Pat Benatar concert will be held.
Tree limbs can also be cut and placed on the curb for pick-up with weekly trash collection. Limbs must be cut into pieces four feet long and two inches in diameter, bundled together or placed in yard waste containers.
To report blocked streets or other storm related problems call the Mayor's Hotline at 402-444-5555.
