CATOOSA COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -- Catoosa County and Ringgold will stop picking up storm debris on June 26th.
"The clean-up process is now in the rebuilding phase and that is evident by the type of materials now being collected," Helton said. "During this phase, we must be mindful that federal regulations prohibit any duplication of benefits."
According to Helton, if a resident has been provided a source for the demolition of their home such as insurance; have hired a contractor to demolish and rebuild, then it is the responsibility of that contractor to remove the debris from the property and dispose in a licensed disposal facility.
No debris from commercial businesses or rental houses, duplexes or apartments will be collected, he said.
"Residents doing their own work should continue to separate vegetative and non-vegetative debris," Helton said.
Wright added that residents should keep debris away from fire hydrants, valves, and utility poles.
Citizens affected by the storm event and needing debris picked up at the side of the roads should contact public works division at (706) 935-3574 to be placed on pick up schedule.
