BRANSON, Mo., 7/19/2023 – Due to the recent storms that downed trees and limbs across the region, the City of Branson is designating a storm debris drop-off location on Saturday, July 29, 2023, from 7:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. at the Cooper Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, located at 2855 Fall Creek Road. Please watch for City staff and community volunteers who will be greeting residents at the entrance to the facility to help direct to the drop off site.
This service is offered at no charge and is for residents of Branson only and not commercial vendors or properties. The drop-off is for the collection of brush, limbs, and other vegetation. Please note that trash will not be accepted.
“This action plan provides for our City’s residents to bring debris to a controlled location,” said Branson Fire Chief Ted Martin. “We will greet people at the entrance to the Cooper Wastewater Plant and follow a traffic plan to the drop off location,” said the Chief.
“The City of Branson greatly appreciates the cooperation of our residents during recent road clearing following last weekend’s storm,” said Branson Mayor Larry Milton. “Our priority is to clear roadways for fire, police and ambulance to keep our City safe. Our teams worked 15 hours straight ensuring this happened. Thank you to our employees in the Public Works, Utilities, Fire and Parks departments who worked from Friday night well into Saturday,” concluded Mayor Milton.
History: Severe thunderstorms affected the Branson community on the evening of Friday, July 14 causing widespread tree damage. To reduce risk caused by open burning across the community and rodent infestation in stacked debris, the City is taking this action.
