As residents begin to clear debris at their homes, they should place the debris in segregated piles at the curb for collection. The debris piles should be no longer than 8 feet and should be placed to not block traffic or drainage. Citizens are asked to cut limbs to lengths of no more than 6 feet and stack at the curb for collection. Additional separation of vegetation from lumber, appliances (white material) and household hazardous materials since they are collected separately.
There are two contractors for the City of Baytown residents to assist with the removal of debris. These contractors are: BAMACO and DRC, and they are authorized by city officials to remove debris. Beck’s Engineering has also been contracted to provide oversight with the debris removal. These contractors will be making sweeps of the city over the next few days.
Unfortunately, there may be individuals and/or businesses who may be offering to remove debris and make home repairs that may be questionable service.
BAYTONIANS PLEASE BEWARE AND ALERT TO THOSE WHO MAY BE ATTEMPTING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR RESIDENTS IN YOUR TIME OF NEED.
