Many residents throughout Sedgwick County were affected by this month's storm, resulting in large amounts of tree and brush debris. To assist residents with cleanup, Sedgwick County has set up a tree debris burn site at 63rd Street South and Meridian, at the “Big Ditch.”
The burn site will remain available throughout the month of July. Currently debris is being collected and the actual burning of the debris will be determined at a future date.
The burn site is intended for tree and brush debris only. Fences, structure remains, bulky waste, and all other trash will not be accepted. Citizens may take all other trash to one of two transfer stations in Sedgwick County: Waste Connections on the northwest corner of 37th Street North and West Street and Waste Disposal, LLC on the northeast corner of 55th Street South and Hoover. Fees may apply and be prepared to pay with cash.
For Haysville city residents, a limb drop-off site is also located at Haysville Public Works, 401 S. Jane. The hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., and 1-5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday by appointment only. Call 529-5940 by noon on Friday to schedule an appointment for the weekend. Available appointment hours are Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 1-4 p.m.
This service is available to Haysville residents only. Residents will be required to provide vehicle information and proof of residency. For more information contact Public Works at 529-5940.
Crews from the city of Haysville are continuing to pick up limbs that city residents have placed by their curbs. It will take some time to finish the job, however.
Haysville’s chief administrative officer, Will Black, said it could be another six weeks before the cleanup effort is completed.
