WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita Public Works and Utilities officials provided an update on cleanup efforts from last week’s wind storm during a Tuesday morning briefing at Wichita City Hall.

City officials reminded residents that crews will pick up broken tree limbs from city trees that are on the public rights-of-way.

The area is generally next to the street.

City crews plan to make only one pass through affected areas. Residents can track progress of the city’s cleanup effort by viewing a map at www.wichita.gov.

City officials said there are at least 18 crews, working Monday through Friday, on the cleanup.

There are as many as five employees working on each crew.

Officials said all city streets are now passable but the clearing and hauling of broken limbs will take up to three more weeks.

Private property owners need to contact a waste hauler if they leave storm debris at curbs.

A list of licensed solid waste haulers is provided at www.wichita.gov.

Residents can also haul their own storm debris to one of four disposal sites listed below.
