Neighborhood Debris Clean Up
Plans are being finalized for a coordinated private property flood debris removal effort. In the interim, affected residents, as much as possible, are asked to separate debris into different piles. For example.
- branches, leaves, and other vegetative materials that can go into a wood chipper
- metal and related materials suitable for recycling
- glass (gather glass carefully; before you set it out, double-bag it to avoid accidents)
- lumber, insulation, bricks, siding, and other debris from buildings
- furniture and other large items
- appliances (use duct tape to hold refrigerators and freezers closed)
- ruined clothing and furnishings
Set the piles as close to the road as possible:
- If you have a curb near your home, put them on top of the curb, not in the road.
- If you have a ditch and no curb near your home, put them in the grassy area between the ditch and the road. Be sure not to block the ditch or the road.
At this time, Household hazardous wastes (HHW) such as paints, pesticides, and batteries should be gathered and staged at a different location on your property and not left at the curb.
Further instructions regarding HHWs will be provided to affected residents in advance of the actual neighborhood debris collection effort.
