  • CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION DEBRIS. Damaged components of buildings and structures such lumber and wood, wall board, glass, metal, roofing materials, tile, furnishings, and fixtures.

Only loose debris will be collected. Bagged debris should not be placed on the public right-of-way.

The county has said that residents should get their debris out in the state right-of-way as soon as possible, but there will be more than one pass through storm-damaged areas by the contractor.
