Richmond crews continue hurricane clean-up during Labor Day weekend

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Due to the extensive amount of storm debris throughout the city, crews will continue to work Saturday, Sunday and Monday removing fallen trees and debris.

If you leave items curbside, do not place them on sidewalks, in drainage ditches or in parking lanes. They may be placed in alleys, but must not block the alleyway. Keep in mind, due to the magnitude of the clean-up effort, it may take anywhere from several days to several weeks for all debris to be collected.

The city understands in this extreme situation, some branches and limbs may be very large. If you are cutting limbs, please exercise extreme caution and wear the proper protective equipment. If possible, please try to cut the pieces so they are no longer than 4 feet long, not larger than 2-4 inches in diameter and do not weigh more than 40 pounds, as this size is easier for curbside or alley removal.

Extended hours also are being offered at convenience centers for city residents who want to discard storm debris on their own: 3060 Maury Street - Saturday through Monday, 7 a.m. To 5 p.m. East Richmond Road convenience center - Saturday, 7 a.m. To 7 p.m., Sunday 7 a.m. To 5 p.m.

For additional information, please call 3-1-1. To learn more about city of Richmond services, visit www.richmondgov.com.
