The City of Marion will be collecting natural storm debris, which includes fallen tree limbs, brush and branches that resulted from the storms that moved through our area during the early morning hours on June 14 and left damage across the city.  

The city will provide this one-time collection over the next several days that will assist residents looking to clear their properties of storm debris.

Crews will be chipping the storm debris at curbside during this collection.  Therefore, residents are being asked to set tree limbs, brush and branches in the tree lawn area of their property.  For the safety of the motoring and walking public, debris should NOT be placed in the street or block the sidewalk.

Property owners not wanting to wait for curbside collection service can drop off storm debris to Outdoor Resource Supply (560 Barks Rd. W.)

Tips for curbside collection of storm debris:

  • Place fallen trees, branches and brush in the tree lawn area of your property near the street. Do not let it block or overhang the curb or sidewalk. The height should not impact vehicle sightlines.
  • Cut branches and trees into manageable pieces.
  • Do not place any storm debris on the road.
  • Only set out natural storm debris. No root balls or stumps. No garbage or construction waste.
