The Public Works Department is again extending its waiver on restrictions for collection of tree limbs, brush and other storm debris for residents who pay the full refuse fee. In addition, restrictions are being waived for collection of flood-damaged furniture and household items.
The waiver is in effect until Nov. 30.
Residents who do not pay the full refuse fee and businesses will need to use their private hauler.
The restrictions waived include the volume and weight of debris and the size of the debris pile.
For small household items such as books, residents are asked to box or bag the items in order to allow for quicker collection. They also can be placed in the same cart used for weekly trash collection.
For debris, residents are asked to place the debris at the edge of their property line, but do not block sidewalks or allow the debris to extend into the roadway. Do not mix yard waste with other debris or garbage. Tree stumps, root balls and hazardous waste are not collected.
Automated collection of trash remains on schedule. Loose-leaf collection crews this week resumed full-scale collection of loose leaves. Prior to this week, they had been assisting with storm cleanup and recovery.
