The city of Hannibal is helping residents remove debris from the New Year’s Day ice storm.

Andy Dorian, director of Central Services, said limbs and tree debris should be moved to the curb so it can be removed. The debris removal is a joint project manned by the Street Department, Parks & Recreation Department and Board of Public Works.

“We are asking that people place the tree debris on the curb,” Dorian said. “We are also asking for patience, it was a big storm and there was a lot of damage on city property, parks and on private properties.”

If debris from the curb hasn’t been retrieved by Feb. 16, Hannibal residents should call the Street Department hotline at 573-221-0111 and leave their name and address.

Also, in order to expedite cleanup, the Yard Waste Lot at 701 Warren Barrett Drive is now open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Dorian said, “We strongly encourage anyone who’s able, to use the Yard Waste Lot and not wait for the crews to come around.”

The Yard Waste Lot is for anything that is grown in nature – sticks, branches, leaves, etc., but no bags should be left.
