Curbside removal of debris from the ice storm will begin Monday, November 2, and continue through Friday, November 20 in Yukon.

The City of Yukon requests that all residents with storm damage reduce its size to less than 6 feet in length and stack the tree debris parallel to the street and within 10 feet of the curb line to assist in its removal, according to a news release.

Additionally, the debris should be several feet away from items such as trash carts, mailboxes, gas meters, and any overhead obstructions, the release states.

To accommodate the large amount of storm debris, Yukon Public Works is opening up the land on the southwest corner of State Highway 66 and Frisco Road, an area commonly referred to as the “sports park property.” The area will be used for debris drop-off.

Residents can take storm debris to SH 66 and Frisco.

There is no cost to dispose of storm damage.

Drop-off starts at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31 and will remain open seven days a week. Driver’s license and a copy of your Yukon utility bill will be required for disposal.
