PRINCE GEORGE, VA (WWBT) – A second storm debris collection site is opening Wednesday to help with the cleanup from Hurricane Irene.

The new site is located at 4700 Middle Road, at the intersection of Middle Road and Romans Road. The site is next to the New Jerusalem Fellowship Church and will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Starting Thursday, September 1, the Middle Road location will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., the same hours as the Prince George County Convenience Station. The Convenience Station is located at 3100 Union Branch Road.

Both the Middle Road debris collection site and the Prince George County Convenience Station are open Tuesdays through Sunday.

All debris fees are being waived for storm-related items. You're asked to have your debris pre-sorted into three piles for disposal purposes and to help speed up the drop-off line at both sites. You should have one pile for tree limbs, one for stumps, and one for building materials.

A public information line will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to answer storm-related questions. That number is (804) 733-2659.
