See if you can remember way back to October 1996, when a freak fall storm piled snow on still-leafed trees throughout northeast Johnson County, downing hundreds of limbs. Remember that mountain of chunked wood that piled up in Porter Park? Well sir, we may have a similar site to behold in the coming weeks. Prairie Village has designated Porter Park as the drop off area for storm debris. From the city:
The City of Prairie Village will be establishing a storm debris drop off site for tree damage debris as a result of the recent snow storms. Residents can drop off storm debris at Porter Park starting Friday, March 1st through Sunday, March 17th. Debris must be placed in the designated area located in the parking lot. Porter Park is located at Roe Ave & Tomahawk Rd. The debris drop-off is available for storm debris from residential properties only. Public Works will evaluate the damage to street trees.
Deffenbaugh also accepts limbs at the curb as part of your weekly collection. Limb debris must be cut into 4 foot sections and tied with twine or string in bundles of less than 18 inches in diameter. Residents are allowed up to 12 yard waste items each week during the month of March. Visit https://www.pvkansas.com/index.aspx?page=214 for more information.
