City of Bellevue Update on Storm Cleanup Efforts

The City of Bellevue has been working with Papillion Sanitation to formulate a plan for residents and neighborhoods that were heavily effected with property damage from last Friday’s storm event.  Papillion Sanitation will be contracted to open a temporary dump site location in the Two Springs neighborhood in the Two Springs Elementary School parking lot at 3001 Spring Boulevard.  These temporary dump sites will accept bulk items and construction and demolition debris. No Appliances, liquids, tires, hazardous waste or tree debris will be accepted

The temporary dump sites in the Two Springs neighborhood will be staffed by City Employees and open daily from 6am-3pm, starting on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 though Wednesday, June 28, 2017.  Due to the landfills and transfer stations being closed, there may be limited capacity on Sunday; therefore, the site will close when full and will reopen on Monday at 6am. No afterhours dumping will be allowed. These hours are necessary to allow for the last haul to reach the transfer station or landfill before they close for the day in order to meet Department of Environmental Quality standards for this type of debris.

It is our understanding that Sarpy County will be opening similar dumpsites in the Hyda Hills and Normandy Hills neighborhoods. Residents in these areas will be receiving notification from their SID leadership regarding further details.

If you live in neighborhoods inside the City limits and have storm related property damage, you can drop off allowed materials at the temporary dumpsite located at Two Springs as well. Additional curbside pickup services will be available through Wednesday, June 28th by Papillion Sanitation, on your regularly scheduled pickup day.  These services include; One (1) additional containerized or bagged amount of construction and demolition material, not to exceed 75 lbs. Two (2) small bulky items, not to exceed 2’x 3’ in size and 75lbs in weight each.  No Appliances, Liquids, Tires, or Hazardous Waste will be accepted.  Curbside collection is currently on schedule, however may experience delays.

Residents may also contact Papillion Sanitation directly at, 402.346.7800, to schedule additional large bulk item curbside pickup for a fee.

The City of Bellevue’s new Tree Debris Dump site at Haworth Park, north of the Softball Fields, is now open to the public. This tree dump is only available for tree related debris and will remain open to the public to dispose of tree related debris from 8am to 8pm at least through Wednesday, June 28th. The Tree Dump on Cedar Island Road will not be open to the public as of Tuesday morning (June 20th) so city crews can use it for neighborhood pickup disposal.

The City continues to strongly encourage those citizens that are able to take advantage of the free City Tree Dump and regular tree branch pickup through Papillion Sanitation throughout the week. Beginning on Tuesday, June 20th, the Bellevue Public Works Department will coordinate with the Sarpy County Public Works Department to start curbside pickup of tree related debris in neighborhoods. City Crews cannot come on to private property or yards to remove debris so citizens need to make sure any damaged trees and branches are cut and placed into piles no more than 6 feet long and are placed at the curb for crews to pick up. City Crews have begun these neighborhood pickup efforts today, starting at Harrison and heading south throughout the week to the city limits so citizens are encouraged to place tree related debris on the curb as soon as possible.

 

Once again, thank you to all of the citizens of Bellevue for their patience and efforts as we cleanup from this devastating storm. The City will provide additional updates as needed.
