HOUSTON COUNTY ANNOUNCES DEBRIS PICKUP PLAN
As has been our policy in previous storm situations, Houston County Road and Bridge and Sanitation will be picking up debris created by Saturday night’s storm at no charge to our citizens. The damage is so widespread, the pickup will be county wide but the debris must be a result of Saturday night’s severe thunderstorms that struck the county.
Please be aware of the following guidelines:
Citizens will have until May 15th to get the storm related debris to the right of way for the county to pick it up. It will take the county several weeks or possibly months to get up all the debris so be patient and know that, while you need to get it out to the right of way now, it may be there a while. Separate limbs, building debris and metal into separate piles. They go to different disposal sites. DO NOT stack debris on the road! This is very important!
We appreciate your cooperation and are glad to provide this service to our citizens in this time of need. Also, we are again thankful that there were no significant injuries.
