City of Auburn provides guidelines for storm debris pickup

Auburn, Ala. - Many Auburn residents will be placing larger volumes of yard debris material at curbside this week as they clean up broken branches, fallen trees and other debris resulting from the severe storm that damaged Auburn.

Due to the large volume of debris expected, citizens may experience a delay in the collection schedule as the clean-up continues. Every reasonable effort will be made to maintain the regular collection schedule.

Citizens are asked to pay close attention to the following guidelines when placing items out for collection:

  • Debris should be placed at the curb no later than 6:00 a.m. on your regularly scheduled collection day. (Please take into account the revised garbage collection schedule for Thanksgiving week)
  • No household garbage, hazardous waste, or other unacceptable waste should be placed out for collection with debris.
  • Debris should not be placed in the roadway, on or around storm drains, near utility lines, on utility boxes, or on vacant lots.
  • Limbs and other debris should be no longer than 5 feet in length.
  • To facilitate wood debris and metal recycling efforts, please separate all wood debris, including limbs and grass clippings from metal items.

For more information, please contact the City of Auburn Environmental Services Department at 501-3080 or visit the City of Auburn website at www.auburnalabama.org/es. To receive scheduling announcements, subscribe to the Trash Pickup and Recycling News e-Notifier @ www.auburnalabama.org/e-Notifier.
