City of Lubbock Sets Up Debris Drop Off Locations


Chris Due, Special to

The City of Lubbock has set up locations around the Hub City to drop off debris in the aftermath of Wednesday night’s thunderstorms.

Residents can drop off storm debris; mainly trees, limbs and branches at locations across the city.

The City of Lubbock is urging elderly and disabled residents who cannot exit their driveways due to downed trees and branches are urged to call the city for help.

Residents needing assistance need to call 311 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Some of those locations are the George Woods Community Center at East Erksine and North Zenith, Mackenzie Park at the I-27 entrance, Maxey Park at 30th and Nashville, Mahon Park on 29th Drive, the Southside Recycling Center at 84th and Avenue P and the Northside Recycling Center at 208 Municipal Drive.

Also, due to last night’s storm, City of Lubbock pools are closed until further notice.

The storms have caused a mass casualty exercise to be postponed in Lubbock. The exercise to take place at the Texas Tech University Recreation Center has been postponed to an undetermined date and time.

Due to regulation requirements, the portion of the exercise with University Medical Center personnel will still take place tomorrow in the Rec Center parking lot at 1:30.
