County's helping to clean-up storm debris

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - The piles of debris are really starting to pile up. Now, crews in Henrico are changing their pick up plan to help you out. Also, leaders in Chesterfield are talking to VDOT about debris pickup from your curbside, as well.

That change in Henrico County comes after the huge amount of debris which is now left there, littered all over the county and it's roads. The people who live in Henrico are happy that the county has decided to help them out.

As power crews continue to turn the lights back on, other crews continue to clean up the thousands of tree branches that line the county streets.

Some people like Mimi Ryland are doing that on their own. But ending up with huge piles like in front of their homes. Now the county is stepping in to pick all this up!

"That was a huge gift! A nice use of Henrico tax money. We really appreciate it," said Mimi.  

Here's the plan in Henrico. Right now crews are clearing the debris in the roads. Then, after Labor Day, crews will start picking up debris from your curb, for free!

Crews in Henrico will pick up debris like smaller limbs and loose leaves. The county will not pick up huge tree trunks and logs. That is up to you to get rid of.

"We're trying to lay it out in an orderly fashion so they won't have any trouble picking it up," added Mimi.  

Over in Richmond, city crews have a plan to pick up this mess over the next month and a half. In Chesterfield, VDOT is working with county crews to figure out a plan to get the debris out of the right of ways in your neighborhood.

Also, remember - you can still drop off your debris at a collection center in any of these three areas - for free as well.

The debris pickup in Henrico should take 3 to 4 weeks. But, it could last longer depending on how much there is to pick up.

In Henrico, you can also put some of your limbs in your trash can and that will be picked up on your regular garbage day.

Here are the locations for you to drop off your storm debris:
