6:33 am
it needs to be in a different pile. if you you don't do that there's a chance it may not get picked up. here's a breakdown the county gave out. items can be separated into different piles like furniture, appliances, construction materials, vegetation and hazardous waste. crews will not separate the debris for you. so again if you don't separate them they may not pick up your trash. meanwhile, crews are going door- to-door looking and evaluating damage. this is vide today the reps are evaluating damage from pub properties such as daniel to county-owned buildings and land. the assessment is important because a federal disaster deck clearration could be declared that makes federal dollars available. >> homeowners welcome this relief. >> it falls on me.
