In the aftermath of Sunday’s destructive winds, the city of West University has scheduled a special pickup of storm debris — vegetation only — in affected neighborhoods on Friday (April 12).
Ceres Environmental, the city’s contracted hauler, will make one pass through the areas hit hardest by the sudden gusts — south of University Boulevard — identified in a survey by city crews. Debris must be set out by 7 a.m. Friday according to these guidelines:
•No household trash or any other type of non-vegetative debris in the piles.
•No parking on the street in front of the piles placed curbside.
•No piles next to poles, trees, street lights, fire hydrants, structures or on top of meter boxes that will make removal difficult.
The pickup does not include bulk trash, which will be collected under city guidelines available here. Any vegetative debris left for collection after Friday must meet West U’s curbside collection guidelines for yard waste, available here.
For any continuing problems with unstable trees or branches in the city right-of-way, contact Public Works at 713-662-5839 or email@example.com.
Contact Assistant Public Works Director Gerardo Barrera, 713-662-5845 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or concerns.
