Safety Hazards

  • If you encounter major safety hazards such as downed power lines please call 9-1-1 right away
  • If possible, avoid areas that look hazardous

Power Outages

  • Most of the City seems to have power, but if you experience any power outages please contact your power company directly
  • Public Works crews are working on making sure that all traffic signals have power

Damaged Trees

  • The City's compost site (located off of 121st Street behind Dodge of Burnsville) will open for individual/private residential tree and branch drop off. A schedule of hours will be released and posted here as soon as possible
    • Only trees and plants will be accepted -- contractor drop-offs will not be allowed
  • Some areas of the city received significant amounts of damage. In those areas with significant damage, City crews will offer curbside pick up of trees/branches. Crews are working to identify the areas that will receive pick up 
  • Curbside pick-up for those identified areas is expected to begin Monday, Sept. 20. Additional details will be posted here as they become available
  • Please note, City crews cannot remove trees if a power line is in the tree. If you notice a power line is tangled in a tree please call 9-1-1 so they can dispatch a power crew to the scene before a tree crew arrives
