As citizens begin their cleanup, please remember the following tips:
- All debris for collection should be placed curbside between the sidewalk or property line and the curb.
- When possible, leave vegetative debris loose and unbagged at the curb.
- Debris should be separated at the curb from vegetative, construction and demolition, appliances and white goods and electronics, and household hazardous waste.
- Be careful and safe when moving large, bulky storm-related debris to the curb.
- Debris removal trucks will not pick up household garbage; Waste Pro will continue to collect trash and recycling as usual.
- Do not stack or lean debris against sprinkler heads, meters, poles, trees, backflows, and other structures.
For further information on how best to organize debris and how to safely place materials at the curb, please review the included debris disposal guide .
