Storm-related Debris

Handling Storm-related Debris

It can be difficult to know where to begin when severe weather has affected your property. Following certain guidelines can help make for a speedier removal process.

 

What not to do:

Debris placed on your property cannot be picked up. Contractors cannot collect items on private property
Do not prop debris against poles and trees. This makes it harder for cleanup crews to collect the items

 

DO separate your debris:

  • Household garbage
  • Construction debris
  • Vegetation debris
  • Household hazardous waste
  • “White” goods
  • Electronics
