[ARCHIVED] Information on Debris Collection, Separating Debris & Handling Sandbags

CrowderGulf will be collecting vegetation storm debris and sandbags throughout this weekend beginning Friday, September 15. The collection crews will be driving CrowderGulf trucks and will also be accompanied by personnel from Thompson Inc. to monitor the collections. Please note that the crews collecting vegetation storm debris and sandbags will not be driving city garbage trucks.

Residential garbage collection will operate on the normal schedule this week. We began collecting heavy trash on the south side of Oyster Creek Drive this morning and will continue collection for the next few days. We will begin collection of heavy trash on the north side of Oyster Creek Drive Wednesday. The heavy brush removal as a result of Hurricane Harvey is still on-going this week. We hope to have all heavy brush removed this week.Thank you for your patience.

Please do not stack debris on water meter boxes or sewer clean outs.
Special Instruction for handling sandbags:

Wet Sandbags: Please separate any contaminated sandbags for disposal. When handling contaminated sandbags wear rubber gloves, and dispose of those gloves after one use. Consider any sandbags that have come into contact with flood water to be contaminated.

Dry Sandbags: Please cut open sandbags and distribute in your lawn if possible. Empty sandbags can be discarded in your regular household garbage bags.
