Lawton offers drop off sites, curb-side pickup for storm debris

LAWTON, Okla._The City of Lawton is offering two bulk drop off sites for tree debris from the recent ice storm.

The two sites, McMahon Ball Park at Southwest 38th Street and Lee Boulevard and East Side Park near West 45th Street and Gore Boulevard, will be open from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. from December 1 until December 11, excluding December 6. The drop off locations are for ice storm tree debris only.

Curb-side collection will be provided for the elderly, disabled and those without the means to transport tree limbs to the drop off locations. In order to receive this service, call Solid Waste Collections at 580-581-3413 or 580-581-3428 to be placed on the collection list.

For the curb-side service, piles are to be no larger than 6-foot tall, 6-foot wide or 6-foot deep. The pile should be placed at the curb in front of the house and should not be within 10 feet of any permanent structure (i.e. mailbox, gas meter, etc.)  If the crew cannot safely pick up the pile utilizing the grappling arm, it will remain at the curb.

All calls for reserving your name on the collection list will be accepted during the hours of 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. December 1 through December 4, and December 7 through December 11.

Lawton residents can also take their tree debris directly to the landfill at no charge.
