Officials said cleaning efforts are underway. Donna’s Public Works Department asks residents to leave tree debris near the curb for pickup, though the trash collection will take nearly three weeks.
The city said the trash collector company BFI plans on bringing in additional trucks to help speed up the clean-up, but they’re still behind on picking up debris from February’s winter storm.
