Continued Storm Cleanup Plan for Great Bend, Trees & Limbs


GREAT BEND, Kan. The City of Great Bend has put together a plan for the cleanup of trees and limbs following the recent storm that passed through the city July 16.

A recent news release from Great Bend shared that the next step for cleanup is to drive every neighborhood and pick up downed trees and limbs with the following rules:

If you cannot take your own limbs to the City Compost Site, please gather them at the edge of your yard by the curb.

  • Piles should be placed within a 3 feet proximity of the street curb line.
  • Trees and limbs should be cut to 6 feet or shorter to help city efforts and cleanup.
  • Please have them to the curb by the street no later than Monday, July 24, at 8 a.m.

The city will drive through every neighborhood, but crews will only drive by one time until July 24 at 8 a.m.

Starting Monday, July 24, the city asks through the next two weeks to please park in driveways and do not block or impede limbs and piles until they are gone. Inaccessible piles will be left.

If you would like to volunteer to help, send an email to [email protected]. For more questions, call City Hall at 620-793-4111.

The City of Great Bend also released a current list of approved tree trimmers. You can find the list here.
