LANSING (WILX)--- We've been looking at the debris piles for three months, but not for much longer.
Lansing finally has a plan for picking up the debris left over from December's ice storm. The city is starting Monday, March 31st, and the weekend looks to be perfect for spending it outside.
Residents are requested to cut brush and limbs to four 4 feet in length or less, and put them curbside. There is no limit on diameter for this special collection. Stumps will not be collected.
The city will be starting with two crews, with plans to add more. A total of five crews should be on the streets by the end of the first week.
Crews will start on the city's North-West side and the South side, between Miller and Jolly. Lansing will have a debris clean-up map that will track the progress, and notify what neighborhoods are next.

The clean-up is expected to take 4-5 weeks to complete.
But Lansing isn't the only city ready to get to work either.
Meridian Township has announced that they will start cleaning up on April 14th, on the North side. Divided by Grand River Avenue, the South side will be given a different start date when the time gets closer.
East Lansing residents have until Monday, April 7th to get their limbs and branches to the curb for free collection.
