UPDATE: Debris removal to begin in Bradley County

Posted: Updated:

BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) The giant task of removing debris in Bradley County will begin on Friday May 13th.

Storm related debris removal will be taking place Monday through Saturday, for a period of several weeks.

They estimate more than 160 tons of brush in the city and county.

True North will begin collecting it all soon. Disaster debris removal will begin in several areas simultaneously. There will be at least 2 passes made in order to give residents adequate time to place debris on right-of-way for removal.

Bradley County landfill hours have been extended to local residents (for personal use) during the removal period. Hours of operation will be Monday through Saturday 7 a.m. To 6:30 p.m., beginning Monday.

And if you have room on your property, you're asked to burn the tree brush to help move along the process.

 

Officials ask that the guidelines below are followed to ensure FEMA regulations for disaster debris removal are met and your debris meets standards for free removal:

• Move all debris to the regularly maintained right-of-way of your property. Contractors cannot enter private property to remove debris for any reason.

• If you do not have insurance and need assistance moving debris to right-of-way contact the Bradley Baptist Association @ 423-476-5493 to request volunteer services.

• All debris should be sorted according to the following specifications:

• Do not place debris in drainage ditches, around utility guide wires or fire hydrants.

a. Vegetative (whole trees, tree stumps, branches, trunks and other leafy material).

b. Construction & Demolition Debris (damaged components of buildings and structures such as lumber, wood, drywall, metal, roofing material, metal, tile, carpeting, floor covering, windows, pipe, furniture & fixtures).

c. White Goods (household appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, heat pumps, ovens, ranges, washing machines, clothes dryers and water heaters). Discarded propane tanks will be accepted but must be placed in a separate, distinguishable area.

d. Household Hazardous Waste (unused containers of cleaners, corrosives, flammable products, paint, etc.).

e. Small Debris & Storm-Related Garbage (bagged for pick up).
