Crews in Sioux Falls continue to make progress cleaning up from last month's ice storm.
To date trucks have hauled nearly 5,000 tons of trees and branches from the April 9th storm. Arborists contracted by the city have removed just over 8,000 hanging branches and 169 trees.
People hauling their own waste to drop off sites are being asked to bring only branches or trees.
City crews are beginning to make their second passes to pick up debris, and they're asking residents to follow some guidelines.
Director of public works Mark Cotter says, “As you get ready for us to come through your neighborhood, again please consolidate your branch piles. It does make the teams more efficient if they can come to just one setup as opposed to three small setups. And also, please do not park in front of the branch piles."
Hours have been reduced at the city landfill and it is no longer open on Saturdays.
All other drop-off sites are staying open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
