The winter storm that hit Central Texas a couple of weeks ago left debris and broken tree limbs everywhere. If you've been driving around recently, you've probably seen friends, neighbors, and even businesses with some broken branches still lying around in a pile.

If you're someone who's still dealing with this headache, here's some good news - Bell County is making its landfill available this weekend for you to get rid of all that dead wood.

Bell County Winter Storm Debris Clean Up

According to a press release from the county, the Bell County Landfill will be open on Saturday, February 18th. It will also be open to the public. The area will be open from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. You'll find the landfill at 11203 Landfill Road in Holland.

What Will Be Done With All The Debris?

Bell County Road & Bridge crew members will be at the landfill to make sure only tree limbs and other vegetation are dropped off. A loader will then be used to keep debris consolidated into a big pile.

The whole pile will later be burned.

Remember: ONLY Tree Limbs and Vegetation

This drop off event will only be for people who need to rid their property of downed limbs and other vegetative debris after the recent ice storm.

If you've got other garbage you need to get rid of, this is not the event for that. You'll need to check your city's garage schedule to see when they do bulk pickup, or ask the folks at the landfill for their advice on what to do.

Here's some of the damage we were able to photograph:
