Olathe finishing up storm debris removal

Even as more snow continues to fall, the city of Olathe has been plugging away on free limb pickup that began after a severe storm in January.

Limb collection has been completed west of Interstate 35, and residents there will have to pay for any additional pickups.

East of I-35, crews expect to complete the work by March 1. Residents can call the week of March 4 for any missed pickups, but the bulk pickup rate will apply for missed addresses reported after 5 p.m. March 8.

The customer service number is 913-971-9311.
