UPDATE - December 19, 3:20 p.m.: Debris pickup is now running about one-and-a-half days behind schedule. Some collections will be pushed into early next week.
(December 18, 2013) Due to a large number of requests for storm debris pickups across the area, the City of Frisco's limb collection crews are running about half a day behind schedule. This means that about half of the residents who scheduled a pickup for Tuesday did not have their limbs collected on Tuesday, and will instead have them collected today. This same delay will occur through the end of this week. Collection crews should have an opportunity to make up this lost time by working on Saturday.
The city's Environmental Services division asks Frisco residents to have patience this week as crews manage the large amount of debris leftover from last week's ice storm. Residents who have already scheduled their pickup with Environmental Services should note that limbs following the storm debris set-out guidelines may be simply left at the curb and/or near the alleyway until they are collected.
Residents living in the sections of Frisco with Friday as their regular service day may schedule a pickup of their storm debris until Thursday, December 19, at noon. After this cutoff, residents will not be able to make it onto the next day’s list.
If residents miss the cutoff prior to their service day, they may haul their limbs to the Custer Transfer Station (9901 Custer Road in Plano). A driver’s license and current Frisco water bill are required for free drop off. Residents may also choose to cut limbs into 3-foot lengths, tie them with rope or twine and set them out on their regular service day as yard waste recycling.
