[ARCHIVED] Public Works Cleans Up After Ice Storm

Two Public Works employees load limbs that have fallen onto the street into a chipper.

DeKalb Public Works will be running a special curbside loose limb pickup as cleanup continues from Wednesday’s ice storm.

Motorists are urged to use caution since there are lane closures throughout the City from fallen limbs caused by freezing rain. Public Works crews worked Wednesday night to clear roadways and are reopening traffic lanes as quickly as possible.

The special curbside loose limb pickup will begin Thursday and continue into early next week. Chipper crews will be cycling through the City. Residents and businesses are asked to follow these guidelines:

  • The City will be picking up limbs eight inches in diameter or less. A private contractor should be contacted for larger limbs.
  • Please stack limbs in the parkway. Crews are unable to collect limbs from private property.
  • Only fallen limbs caused by the ice storm will be collected during this special pickup. Limbs from landscaping activities will not be collected.

Thank you for your cooperation.
