Rapid City clean-up crews are making progress.
City officials say ground crews have made their first pass through three of the four divisions in the city, picking up fallen trees and branches from the historic blizzard that dumped nearly two feet of snow in city limits.
But there is still a lot of work to do and city officials say residents can help make the clean-up process run smoothly.
If you are able to, continue taking your debris to the drop-off sites. Find a drop-off location in your area online.
If you are unable to take your debris to the site, prepare your debris for curb-side pickup by:
- Consolidating your branch piles.
- Cutting large branches into segments that are less than eight-feet long.
- Placing branches between the sidewalk and the curb.
- Taking sacks of small twigs and branches to one of the free branch drop-off locations.
- Avoid parking your vehicle in front of branch piles.
If you have any questions, you're asked to call 211.
