Residential storm debris collection underway

Published 3:03 pm Friday, April 26, 2024

City Solid Waste Crews are working alongside a storm debris removal contractor to complete the collection of residential vegetative storm debris resulting from the April 10, 2024, severe weather.

In order to expedite this process, residents are asked to have all vegetative storm debris curbside immediately. These collection efforts will continue over the next two weeks. Residents are asked, if at all possible, to avoid blocking sidewalks, storm drains and drainage ditches with vegetative storm debris piles.

Only owner-occupied residential properties are eligible for this pick-up service. Of note, if a contractor is clearing these items from private property through a paid contract with the property owner, then it is the contractor’s responsibility to haul away these materials.

Debris items that can be placed curbside for pick up include bagged leaves, grass clippings and weeds and branches, shrubbery, vines and limbs. Limbs must be cut to 4 feet or less in length and measure less than 4 inches in diameter. Anything over 50 pounds, such as a large tree stump, is not eligible for pick-up.

Residents with debris questions or those who need to report any missed debris can call 337-491-1220.
