Ward County passed an extended debris pick up that will last until Oct. 14. This extention will include placing dumpsters throughout the county on the right of way that allow all affected residents to place flooded debris in them. Contractors will not be picking up debris like before, it is up to the homeowner to place items in the dumpster.
No dumpsters will be placed on private property. Items to be excluded include white goods, hazerdous household waste, electronics, and new construction materials. This will be Ward County residents' last opportunity to have their debris picked at no charge.
The first area to receive dumpsters includes: Intersection of 37th Street Southwest and 36th Street Southwest and the intersection of 36th Street Southwest and Fifth Avenue Southwest in Terracita Vallejo; the intersection of 14th Avenue Northwest and 69th Street Northwest, the intersection of 18th Avenue Northwest and 67th Street Northwest and the intersection of 69th Avenue Northwest and 64th Street Northwest in Robinwood Estates; by 2501 75th Street Northwest in Brooks Addition; intersection of 47th Street Southeast and 33rd Avenue Southeast in Eastside Estates; and 89th Street Southeast and County Road 19 in Logan.
The county will be assessing the needs of each location and placing them accordingly throughout the county. Residents who have debris in other locations or have questions are encouged to contact the emergency management office at 857-6560 to give their location. As this project has a deadline, if the dumpsters are not being used, the county will relocate to another areas.
