(September 2, 2017) – The City of Orange will begin picking up damaged debris as soon as possible in areas within the City where homes were affected by the recent flooding due to Tropical Storm Harvey and flooding from the Sabine River.
Any flood related materials that citizens may want removed from the area must be separated into four distinct categories. FEMA requirements for separation of debris and damaged material are as follows:
- C&D Piles- construction and demolition materials
- Green Waste Piles- tree limbs, branches and cuttings
- White Goods- refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, freezers, etc.
- Hazardous Waste- paints, household chemicals, etc.
The City of Orange Office of Emergency Management would like to remind the citizens of Orange that all debris to be removed must be separated into their proper piles and placed curbside.
**PLEASE DO NOT PLACE DEBRIS IN THE STREET WHICH WILL AFFECT EMERGENCY RESPONSE AND THE RESTORATION OF POWER TO ALL HOMES.
