[City Updates] Clean up debris information (Jan. 3, 2016)
posted over 5 years ago by RowlettEagle07 from Rowlett Community Relief and Family T.R.A.C.E.
From the City of Rowlett: "Just a quick reminder: Currently, we estimate that Storm debris removal will continue for about 10 weeks. The first round of debris removal has actually been completed. The second round is nearly complete. We will make additional passes but homeowners, contractors and volunteers need to adhere to these guidelines to ensure a more safe and rapid recovery. The City will continue to send out communications specifying when the final debris collections will take place. Here are some specific guidelines to assist residents with the process: DO’s: • DO place debris just behind the curb, do not block travel lanes or drainage ditches, driveways or alleys; • DO keep disaster-related debris separate from regular household garbage; • DO, where practical, place clean vegetative debris and recyclable items in separate piles; and • DO recommend that volunteer workers also follow all of these guidelines. DO NOT’s: • DO NOT deposit hazardous waste in the right-of-way, this includes paint, petroleum products, oils, electronic materials, etc.; • DO NOT direct paid contractors to place debris in the public right-of-way; • DO NOT place debris in driveways or alleys; • DO NOT place debris that is covered by insurance on the public right-of-way; • DO NOT comingle household garbage with disaster-related debris; and • DO NOT place debris near obstacles such as gas meters, water meters, fire hydrants or mail boxes.
Thank you VERY MUCH for partnering with us during this process, together we WILL get through this!!"
