NORMAN — More than 25,000 cubic yards of debris has been removed from city parks and street rights of way as a result of the April 13 tornado that hit Norman.
Cleanup work in Andrews Park and Rotary Park — the two hardest hit parks — is complete, Public Works Director Shawn O'Leary said.
Debris removal trucks are still removing debris from street rights of way in the affected areas. Tree-trimming crews have completed the task of removing hazardous hanging limbs along city streets, O'Leary said.
Debris removal trucks have made one complete pass through residential neighborhoods to remove vegetative debris and began a second pass this week, he said.
Crews also are collecting construction and demolition debris separately from the vegetative debris, so residents are reminded not to mix the two types.
Construction and demolition debris includes building materials such as lumber, roof shingles, wooden fences, glass, metal products, appliances and furniture, O'Leary said.
