Albemarle announces debris removal schedule

Saturday, July 6, 2013 — The following release was issued by the office of Assistant City Manager Michael Ferris:

As part of its ongoing windstorm recovery efforts, the City of Albemarle has approved a contract with a firm to begin the process of removing the debris from the street right of way.  To be eligible for State disaster assistance, the City had to undertake a formal process to receive proposals for the work.  The current schedule has the contractor Ceres Environmental Services, Inc. beginning the clean-up work on July 11.  They will start in the hardest hit areas where the volume of debris is the greatest and where there are the largest safety concerns.  They anticipate taking 7 to 10 days to make an entire collection cycle of the City.  Once the first cycle is complete they will begin the second round.  Please make arrangements to bring storm debris to the right of way as soon as possible so you do not miss this window of opportunity for pickup.

We want everyone to be aware that only the debris brought to the street right of way free from obstructions and hazards will be collected.  Neither the City nor its contractor can go on to private property as part of this process.  We realize that some property owners have significant amounts of debris to place out for collection.  If this material can be brought to the street it will be removed.  After the two collection cycles, property owners will be responsible for disposal.  The City’s contract with Waste Management is for standard yard waste removal, both in size and volume.  Waste Management will not be picking up the large scale debris placed out after specialized debris removal contractor is complete.  Property owners will need to make private arrangements for their debris removal needs once the contractor is complete with the two collection cycles.  The public is also reminded to not mix any other types of waste with the storm debris.

  • cleaning supplies Don't judge mothers with messy homes

    I was building shelves in my garage when a neighbor girl, one of my 4-year-old daughter's friends, approached me and said, "I just saw in your house. It's pretty dirty. Norah's mommy needs to clean more."
