Casper Continues Branch Cleanup Operations

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

The city of Casper’s public services department began another week of branch cleanup Monday following the record snowstorm that hammered Casper two weeks ago.

The storm downed trees throughout the city, making many roads and pathways impassible.

City of Casper assistant public services director Pete Meyers says, lately, city crews have been focusing on the central and southern portions of the city and are steadily moving east.

Meyers says city crews have processed a staggering amount of downed limbs and branches since the storm.

“We had more than 100 tons of branches brought to the landfill just from people’s extra collection routes,” Meyers said. “But that has nothing at all to do with the number of branches that were brought to the collection sites, which is entirely in addition. It’s going to be a very large number when we’re done.”

The city is currently operating four tree branch drop-off sites.

Officials with Keep Casper Beautiful are still looking for people that would be willing to help clear city parks affected by the storm.

Current list of city-operated drop-off sites:
- Mike Sedar Park south of College Drive
- Iris Street at Valley Drive
- Bryan Stock Trail north of K Street
- Natrona County Fairgrounds
