FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – The City of Fayetteville’s compost center was open Saturday for residents who are still cleaning up debris from Wednesday’s storm.
The compost center was open from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday (July 26). Residents were able to drop off limbs and debris for free.
Also in Fayetteville, city officials said they will pick up limbs on the customer’s regular trash pickup day if the limbs are cut and bound with twine. Transportation director Terry Gulley said the bundles can be four feet long and can’t have any limbs that are thicker than five inches in diameter. He said the city’s first priority is to make sure the roadways and sidewalks are clear.
The City of Bentonville is scheduled to pick up storm debris from residents’ homes Tuesday starting at 7 a.m. City officials in Springdale and Rogers are not planning any special storm debris cleanup measures. However, the City of Springdale is allowing residents to call the city to pick up their storm debris as part of their twice-a-year bulk waste pickup program.
Fort Smith officials are asking locals to put storm debris by the curb. They will pick up the limbs and waste through Aug. 9.
