City of Lebanon Storm Debris Disposal

In response to storms late July 4th and early July 5th, that have caused extensive damage in parts of Lebanon, the Lebanon Public Works Department is opening Saturday, July 6th, to accommodate residents needing to dispose of storm-related lawn debris.

Extended Hours for Storm Debris Drop-Off:
Saturday: 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Regular Hours: 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday
All drop-offs are limited to vegetation such as limbs, trees, and similar storm-related debris.

Residents are reminded to exercise caution around downed lines, trees, and other storm debris. The city is currently evaluating the extent of the damage to determine if additional resources or programs, such as curbside pickup, may be available after major repairs are completed. For now, residents are encouraged to connect with local community groups, churches, and organizations for additional assistance.

Additional Updates
Power Restoration: All power has been restored from last night’s outages, except where meter bases have been damaged. Residents experiencing power issues should report them to the utility outage line at (417) 322-9001.
Siren Activation: There was no tornado warning issued last night, which is generally the criteria for siren activation. This decision is made by the County Office of Emergency Management.
Safety Reminder: Reports have been received of contractors going door-to-door offering assistance with storm damage. Residents are urged to verify that any contractors are legitimate and registered with the city to avoid scams. Door-to-door sales require a peddler’s permit, which can be verified with the Lebanon Police Department at (417) 532-3131.
The City of Lebanon appreciates the community’s patience and cooperation during this time. For more information or to verify contractor registration, residents can contact Lebanon Public Works at (417) 588-6090.
