In order to expedite the debris removal process, debris should be placed curbside, but ensure that the debris is not blocking the roadway. Placing debris near trees, poles, fire hydrants, meters or other structures makes removal difficult. 

Debris should be separated into six categories: 

Electronics: Television, computer, stereo, phone, DVD player

Large Appliances: Refrigerator, washer/dryer, air conditioner, stove, water heater, dishwasher (ensure doors are sealed and secured) 

Hazardous Waste: Oil, battery, pesticide, paint, cleaning supplies, compressed gas

Vegetative debris: Tree branches, leaves, logs, plants

Construction Debris: Building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, plumbing 

Household Garbage: Bagged garbage, discarded food, paper, packaging

For more information on debris removal contact your local municipality.
