Our contractor will finish today, and the City will make sure that all debris forms that were submitted are completed.  We will be returning to normal operations in regard to trash pick-up.  If you still have any tree debris, our normal guidelines can be found at this link: https://www.sandspringsok.org/DocumentCenter/View/3518/Refuse-Collection-Information

I would like to thank our citizens for the support you have shown us during this disaster.  I would like to thank every City employee and our contractors for the hard work, long hours and diligence in bringing our community back to order.  Finally, I would like to thank our City Council for approving the debris operation to help our citizens after this large storm event.
