CHAMPAIGN -- The Public Works Department has set a 4:30 pm deadline, Monday, June 17, to request pick-up of storm-damaged materials. Crews continue working to respond to the wind damage caused by the storm that passed through the city Friday, May 31.

To facilitate cleanup, residents are asked to follow these guidelines when placing materials at the curb:
  • Stack limbs and brush with cut ends parallel to the street
  • Place materials in paper yard waste bags
  • Keep brush and bags separate and away from mailboxes and fire hydrants
  • Avoid parking cars in front of brush and bags
All items must be on the right-of-way, as staff will not enter onto private property to pick up debris. Please note that stacked limbs and bagged materials may be collected at separate times.

The department's goal to finalize storm cleanup is by the end of the day on Monday, June 24. Residents will be responsible for removal of materials after the deadline.

To request pick-up, please contact the Public Works Department at (217) 403 - 4700.
