REGULAR CITY SERVICES UNDERWAY | The City has begun regular sanitation collection services following Hurricane Nicholas. Storm debris pickup has been arranged. It will begin later in the week. We ask residents to separate regular household garbage from storm debris because we take the loads to different places.
HOW TO SEPARATE DEBRIS | Separate fence material and tree limbs, then move them to the right-of-way. Our debris collectors will be gathering what is in the right of way or at the curb. If you don’t separate or move it close enough, they may not be able collect it. Keep in mind that debris removal will begin later this week.
WHERE TO PUT YOUR DEBRIS | Put your debris at the curb or in the right-of-way. If you put it under a tree, our debris collector won’t be able to reach it. Leave it unbagged and separate fence materials from the tree limbs. If you bag the debris, the collector will leave it behind. Debris collection will begin later in the week, and it will continue for 10 days.
BAGGED DEBRIS | We want our residents to be aware that if they bag their debris, our debris collectors will not take it. Bagged debris will be picked up during regular sanitation collection and will be taken to the landfill. Therefore, do NOT put bagged debris at the curb with your storm debris.
DIY MULCH REMOVAL | Our mulch site and Citizen Convenience Center are open at 103 Canna Lane. You are welcome to bring your fence and tree limbs to them if you don’t want to wait for our debris collectors to pick it up. Debris removal will not start until later in the week.
DUMP YOUR OLD REFRIGERATOR FOOD | We understand you might want to get rid of your old food now, especially if you have food from multiple freezers or refrigerators. We continue to ask you to put it out during regular household garbage pickup but if you want to get rid of it now, we have three dumpsters between City Hall and the Civic Center near the frontage road. You can dump your old food there at your own convenience.
DRAINAGE DITCHES | We realize our residents near ditches have a special problem. We wanted you to know that crews have been assigned this week to clear ditches of fallen trees and storm debris. We have also hired extra help to assist our local crews with cleaning drainage ditches. We have the cleaning on a schedule, so please be patient. We are to get caught up on the clearing schedule.
CENTERPOINT | Over the course of the week we have had numerous residents ask us to publicly thank CenterPoint for the efforts the line crews made to restore power as quickly as possible after the hurricane. Today we have virtually 100 percent restoration in Lake Jackson. CenterPoint knew it would take several days to move debris, assess the damage, and restore the lines. They also knew people still needed power. They sent a 5-megawatt generator to the Civic Center free of charge so we could open the Comfort Station and begin handing out emergency food supplies. The generator was part of a new program CenterPoint is rolling out to provide on-the-spot power to residents during longer outages and Lake Jackson was the first place the company ever tried to deliver, install, and start the generator. Thank you, CenterPoint!
H U R R I C A N E N I C H O L A S | THANK YOU!
