Posted By Sheri Badger on Jan 24th, 2012 at 4:56 PM

In the aftermath of last week’s snow storm, city crews are removing hazardous and damaged trees on city property, clearing branches and other storm debris, and restoring access to city streets and parks. The city will be clearing street trees in the following locations that are maintained by the City:

  • East Main (from 3rd St NE to 15th St NE)
  • Meridian (5th Ave NE to 23rd Ave SE)
  • Stewart (Meridian to 23rd St NW)
  • East Pioneer (Highway 512 to Shaw Road)
  • 7th St NW (River Road to Stewart)
  • Intersections along 2nd St NE/NW (at Meeker, Main, and Pioneer)

WHAT YOU CAN DO – Businesses and residents are responsible for clearing debris from trees that were privately planted and/or maintained, including most street trees with the exception of those listed above. DM Disposal will pick up storm debris on your regular yard waste day if the storm debris is place in yard waste bins. Citizens that have branches and other storm debris that won’t fit in their yard waste bin, can dispose of it for free at local transfer stations.

The site will be open daily, January 25-29, 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please follow these guidelines:

  • Bring identification to show that you are a City of Puyallup resident
  • Branches and trees should not exceed 8 feet in length and 10 inches in diameter

Only storm yard waste will be accepted–no roofing, hazardous materials, tree stumps or non-storm related yard waste will be accepted.
