Here’s what to do with all the storm debris in your yard

Dallas Code Compliance will not issue citations for brush and storm debris placed out for pickup, the City of Dallas said.

If you have a downed tree in your yard or have scattered storm debris all over your apartment complex after Sunday’s storms (or last Sunday’s storms), you’re not alone.

This week’s storms knocked over countless amounts of trees across the metroplex and caused thousands of storm-and wind-related claims across Dallas, sending many neighbors scrambling to find a way to dispose of storm debris.

The Fort Worth Office of Emergency Management tweeted this information Sunday June 16 for those who may have debris in their yard:
