In response to the storm event this week that included high winds, the City of Lansing has been working continuously to clean up storm debris, remove downed trees and trim dangerous limbs to eliminate hazards. Approximately 85 sites with significant tree damage have been reported and city crews have investigated and abated over half of these locations. The city’s Forestry crews will continue working to remove all of the hazards caused from downed trees and limbs, as well as beginning collection of debris from the hardest hit areas of the city.
While we continue cleaning up the hardest hit areas over the next few weeks, the city’s yard waste pickup will begin CITY-WIDE on Monday, April 10th .Details of the program and guidelines for the placement of storm debris adjacent to the roadway are indicated below:
If you have a damaged tree on private property, please contact a licensed tree removal company and/or your homeowner’s insurance company to arrange for its appropriate trimming or removal.
To report a downed city tree or to contact us for more information, please call the City of Lansing Public Service Department at 517-483-4161.
