Tree-Debris Disposal & Storm Cleanup Resources
The early July storms and heavy winds that passed through the Omaha metro caused some of the most extensive storm damage this area has seen in recent years. We know the cleanup efforts have been challenging, and appreciate everyone doing their part to keep our community's efforts running smoothly. Below are some resources to help Omaha residents choose from available tree-disposal options and stay safe during the storm cleanup efforts.
Keep Omaha Beautiful will continue to update this page as additional information becomes available. (Last updated 08/02/21 at 10:30am)
