First Pass of Residential Curbside Storm Debris Pick-Up Complete

City crews have completed the first pass of residential curbside storm debris pickup, processing more than 152,000 cubic yards at the debris management site.

A second pass around the city commences today, with crews focusing on alleys and spots that were previously inaccessible. Crews will not be picking up debris that is fresh and non-storm related, as it will not be eligible for FEMA reimbursement. A contractual monitor will assist city crews in evaluating debris in question.
