The limbs and tree branches are piling up along the curbs in the city and in the yards and fields around the rural countryside.

“What are we supposed to with all this debris?” is the question of the day. The answer is different depending on where you live and who services your area.

Claremore residents have the luxury of curbside pick-up at no cost, rural customers will have to haul their own to designated locations.

Following is a listing of area communities and County Commission district sites:

CLAREMORE — City of Claremore is contracting to have curbside pick-up on tree limbs and branches at no cost. Persons with tree/limb

damage may set branches (cut as small as possible) near their curbs for removal at a later date, or brush can be transported and dumped on property at the corner of Chambers and Dupont.

Persons still without power should call 341-0456.
